My off-road tandem enthusiast's discussion forum at Yahoo Groups, Double Forte, is essentially following the same model on an international level with 400 subscribers, less the monthly rides: there just aren't that many off-road tandem enthusiasts close enough together to support a regular "group ride" calendar. We even did about 120 Jersey's a few years ago which are scattered around the world. Alex Nutt will be hosting the second off-road tandem gathering of what are primarily DF members near Asheville, NC in May. There were a couple held a few years earlier both in Asheville and at Tsali, NC where we had folks travelling in far and wide for the weekend. The Tsali weekend was hosted by a DF member from Asheville, David Lee, and I think we had 13 couples: one from Canada, one from Chicago, IL, several from Ohio, one from Michigan, a couple from Florida and so on. I think there may be teams coming to Asheville this May from places like New Jersey, Arizona, Texas and Canada as well as more local places. Again, no real structure other than the discussion forum is the catalyst that's been in place since April 2000.
