Naturbike has been running trips in Morocco for 20 years. Visit Kasbahs, desert oases, small Berber villages and Hollywood movie sets as we cycle through amazing landscapes.

Announcing the location for the 2019 Alabama Tandem Weekend! – PELL CITY, ALABAMA!

Pell City is located on I-20, about 35 miles east of Birmingham and about 110 miles west of Atlanta, GA.

  • We’ve selected the Hampton Inn — Pell City, as our host hotel, and we’ve negotiated a rate of $88/night, plus tax, for our rally-attendees. This rate is good for the period beginning Thursday, April 11, 2019 through Sunday, April 14, 2019.
  • The Alabama Tandem Weekend officially runs from April 12 through April 14, but some of you may want to arrive early or stay an extra night to explore more of the region.

Book your hotel now by clicking on this link: https://secure3.hilton.com/en_US/hp/reservation/book.htm… or by calling the hotel directly @ (205) 814-3000. If calling directly, be sure to ask for the Alabama Tandem rate. Specify the rate code “ATW”!

For those wishing to camp, we recommend Lakeside Landing Marina and RV Park. Lakeside Landing is located about 7 miles south of the hotel on US231. Make your reservations directly with Lakeside Landing by calling (205) 525-5701. Tell them you’re with the Alabama Tandem Weekend.

We don’t anticipate charging a registration fee for the 2019 Alabama Tandem Weekend, but we would appreciate an e-mail (send it to Goertz @ mindspring.com – leave the spaces out), letting us know you will be attending! (Headcounts are nice to know in advance).

Kent County Spring Fling
May 24 – May 27 all-day

The 2019 Kent County Spring Fling will take place May 24-27 in Chestertown, Maryland.

The roads are low-traffic with wide shoulders and very gentle terrain.  This is the 37th year for our event.  In its heyday, the KCSF would attract 50-75 tandems.

It is a wonderful event for the whole family and lots of fun—with the Chestertown Tea Party—even if one didn’t ride.  We stay and dine at historic Washington College.

Registration is now open.

Adventures In Tandem Loire Valley France Tour
Jul 6 – Jul 14 all-day

Think castles, wine, and beautiful landscapes. We ran this tour in 2017 and really loved the quiet roads, amazing food, lovely accommodations, fascinating (although, perhaps a bit confusing) history and unique attractions. Our eight night tour begins on July 6, 2019 when we meet at the Hilton in Charles de Gaulle airport. We will load the bike cases on our van and then leave the Hilton by chartered bus which will take us to the town of Roiffé in the Loire Valley. We will assemble bikes and, time permitting, take a short, group ride to the town of Fontevraud-l’Abbaye where we will tour the famous — and very old! —- Abbaye Royale de Fontevraud where Eleanor of Aquitaine and her son Richard the Lionheart are buried. We will finish the day with dinner at our hotel.

Southern Tandem Rally
Sep 19 – Sep 22 all-day

STR is alive and well in the upcountry of South Carolina!  The rally returns to SC for the first time since 2001.  Like many southern towns, Greenwood was founded in the late 1800’s as a cotton and textile hub.  The cotton mills are gone, but the city continues as a manufacturing center for many different companies.
