2017 Richmond (Virginia) Area Tandem Society (RATS) Calendar

Our friend and Atlanta transplant Christian Courville wrote to let us know that they’d be reading the upcoming 22 April RATS ride in the Maidens area and wanted to be sure any readers here at the TG Blog who might either live in the area but not know of the RATS, or who might be traveling through the area or who just need an excuse to head off for a weekend trip knew of this ride as well as the rest of the 2017 RATS rides.  I should also note, for folks who live in the Richmond Area, RATS is affiliated with the Richmond Area Bicycling Association and all of their rides — including the RATS events — can be found on their Website at the on-line calendar: http://www.raba.org/ride-calendar/

While local club rides typically don’t make it into our Regional & International Tandem Rally calendar, we rarely turn down a guest submission when we think their might be at least one reader or person surfing the web in search of tandem related content who might benefit from that information.  So, here it is, for posterity since these blog posts tend to remain in the archives for at least a year when I do the annual purge of time-limited content.

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?
