Come ride with us!

The Eastern Tandem Rally is a volunteer group of tandem cycling enthusiasts who rally together to ride and socialize at tandem events held in the Northeastern United States. It is the oldest organization of its kind in North America, and has sponsored an annual tandem rally continuously since 1973.

The ETR organization currently sponsors four tandem bicycle rallies.

The Eastern Tandem Rally is our premier event. The 2018 rally will be held in Williamsburg, Virginia from Friday June 15-18.

We co-sponsor the Spring Thaw with the Potomac Pedalers in Cambridge, Maryland. However, the Spring Thaw rally will not be held this year.

The Mid Atlantic Tandem EnthusiastS (MATES) rally is a smaller, more intimate rally.  The 2018 MATES rally will be held in historic Lexington Virginia from Friday, July 20 to Sunday July 22, 2018.

Save the date for the 2018 Eastern Tandem Off Road (ETOR) rally – it will be held from October 4-7 at Allegrippis, Pennsylvania.

Come ride with us, we welcome all tandemists and aspiring tandemists!
