MtJacksonOur dear friends Ed and Karen Hass wrote to let us know the Mid-Atlantic Tandem Enthusiast2014 Rally Website is now up and running and registration is now open.

The rally is being held in Mount Jackson, Virginia on June 20-22.

Here is some additional information that was passed along regarding the event:

Join us for MATES 2014 in Mount Jackson, VA, small town America at it’s best! Enjoy a weekend of tandeming through the beautiful, peaceful countryside of the Shenandoah Valley. If you like to ride hilly terrain, you’ll find it here. If you prefer slightly rolling terrain, you’ll find that as well. Cycle across historic Meem’s Bottom Covered Bridge, enjoy views of distant mountains from the valley floor or beautiful vistas from atop ridgelines, visit Civil War monuments and museums, or relax beside the motel’s pool. For those who want to extend the MATES weekend to further explore the area, you can visit historic Skyline Drive, Civil War monuments, Virginia vineyards, Natural Bridge, Luray or Shenandoah Caverns, the Appalachian Trail, and more. In addition, the District of Columbia is just 2 hours away.

The registration fee is $235 per team and includes:

– Friday Ice Cream Social
– Saturday & Sunday hearty breakfast
– Saturday picnic lunch & Sunday boxed lunch
– Saturday Pre-Banquet Social with wine & soft drinks
– Saturday Banquet Buffet Dinner
– Two MATES T-shirts
– Cue sheets, maps and downloadable GPX files

About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
