The Panthers Tandem Bike Club of Florida
In 2009 the Southern Tandem Rally (STR) was held in The Villages, Florida, and more than half of the registered riders were from the State of Florida . Members of the STR organizing committee who lived in or near The Villages decided to see if there was enough interest to start a new tandem club in Central Florida. From that original core group, the club has grown to more than fifty couples from the entire State of Florida and many of the surrounding states. Riders from northern states and even Canada join us to enjoy our mild weather and tandem-friendly terrain.
