So Cal Tandem Ride - Everyone Invited!

The Orange County Rebels will host a "Tandem Ramble" on Saturday, June 28, 2014.

The final route will be available several days in advance on the Orange County Rebels website.

The Orange County Rebels have always had a good group of tandem teams. This event is a chance for any tandem team to join us for some fun riding along the beautiful Southern California coastline. This will be a fun, social, no-drop ride, and there is no charge to ride with the Rebels.

You can read this flyer to learn more about tandems and the Orange County Rebels.

Here are some pictures from a similar event a couple of years ago.

Hi, we are long time tandem riders living in Fullerton. Just bought a new used Co-Motion Mocha, trying to configure it for our needs. Would love to join you if bike is ready.

Do you have any suggestions of the best bike shop to purchase Co-Motion components (such as Aero bars)?

Thanks.

My first suggestion is that you should contact Co-Motion directly. They will certainly know any dealers in the area that they work with.

Second - I'll contact my OC Rebels tandem buddies and ask if they have any suggestions.

From one of my OC Rebels buddies:

Quote:
As a 12 year owner of a very fun Co-Motion Speedster, I always contact Co-owner Dwan Shepard directly for any Co-motion specific parts or information. They are extremely helpful and have no problem helping us in So. Cal. Especially in Orange County, where we do NOT have a Co-Motion specific Dealer.
They can be reached at Phone # 866-282-6336 in Eugene Oregon.

It's looking like we'll be joining you for the ride tomorrow, if you see a purple Arriva with a dinosaur bag on the stoker bars say hi.
