ETR 2018 Rally

The 46th Annual Eastern Tandem Rally will be held in Williamsburg, VA from Friday, June 15 to Sunday June 17, 2018.

For the first time in 25 years, the Eastern Tandem Rally will return to Williamsburg, Virginia. Located in the heart of Virginia’s Historic Triangle, the Williamsburg area is noted for its beauty and historic attractions: Colonial Williamsburg, Historic Jamestowne, and Yorktown. The greater Williamsburg area is also a great place for cycling (and especially tandem cycling) with over 70 miles of bicycle facilities.

Your Williamsburg, VA hosts – Karen and Reed Nester – have called Williamsburg home for more than 30 years, and have ridden their tandem in the area for 15 years. They know all of the best cycling roads around Williamsburg, and are anxious to share. Together with volunteers from the RATS (Richmond Area Tandem Society) and BikeWalk Williamsburg, we will have a wonderful weekend of riding and socializing.

The Rally will be headquartered at the Williamsburg Woodlands Hotel, adjacent to and within walking distance of the Colonial Williamsburg Historic Area. In addition to the three days of scheduled rides, we will offer additional “on your own” rides for those arriving early or staying later.

For more information, see the Itinerary, Lodging, Routes, Jersey and Frequently Asked Questions pages.

Registration will open in early February 2018.
