Bike spokes were spinning and race car wheels were smoking at the second annual Sebring Tandem Rally the last weekend in March. This year we gathered at the hotel overlooking the Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, FL. We got a chance to gawk at the amateur racers and their high-powered cars while they gasped in amazement at how many miles we tandem riders could crank out with pedal power.
Once again the Florida PANTHERS Tandem Club presented the weekend, thanks to the dedicated efforts of Bob and Jan Thompson. Some 30 tandem couples, including a triple from Tennessee, gathered for the weekend. The weather was nearly perfect and orange blossoms in the groves gave many of our routes a pleasing scent.
More details about the Sebring Tandem Rally 2012 will appear in an upcoming Double Talk, the publication of the Tandem Club of America. But here’s a tease: save some space on your March calendar for the 2013 Sebring Tandem Rally.
