Tandem Cycling - Tandem Organizations near Columbus Ohio?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Hi, I'm selling by Cannondale tandem, and would like to sell in-person rather than ship it.
I'm in Columbus and thought it would help to contact any tandem organizations that might be in or near Columbus. I found a link to GOATS in Beaver Creek near Dayton but the link is dead.
So far today I've advertised it at www.tandemmag.com/classified and on the Columbus craigslist.
Can anyone give me any leads?

I would suggest posting in other Craigslist listings for any major city within 3 hours of you...you have quite a few of them. I'm over in Indy and am getting ready to drive 3 hours to pick up a tandem I purchased (that I also found on the Tandem Mag classified site). Finding the right used tandem takes some time (it took me over a year), so people can be motivated to drive a few hours for the right one.
You might also try the Central Indiana Bicycling Association website (www.cibaride.net). They have both a forum where you can post it as well as a link to the HOOTS (Hoosiers Out On Tandems) website where they also have a classifieds page (not sure if it is for members only or not)...

I try to keep up with all of the still-active tandem clubs in the US at this page:

There's three rivers velosport in Fort Wayne, and they have a forum. It doesn't seem very active, but it's another place: http://www.3rvs.com/

Bobby - saw on the CIBA message board that you sold the bike pretty quickly - congrats!
