Tandem Club - South East London
Who we are
The South East London Region no longer operates as such, however the areas that used to be served by the region are now covered by the Surrey and Sussex and Kent regions.
These pages remain live as a record of the fantastic times many of us have had riding with the group in the past, and the tremendous dedication and hard work applied by the previous regional officers Neville and Tricia.
We are (were) the South East London Region of the United Kingdom Tandem Club.
Neville Frost & Tricia Anderson
Neville and I were Regional Officers for the South East London Region since 1996 and have enjoyed some wonderful experiences with the Tandem Club. We attended all National and International Rallies since then and had great fun on our own regional weekends and rides. For several years now the 3 Regions of South East England (South East London, Kent and Surrey & Sussex) have supported each other closely. As the South East England group we’ve hosted two very successful National Rallies; in 2005 at Sandwich, Kent and in 2010 at Ringmer, East Sussex.
I am now left on my own as my wonderful captain and husband, Neville, died very suddenly whilst we were at the 2010 Easter Rally at Ilam. As a result the group has been shut-down, the relevant postal code areas being taken on by neighbouring regions.
Do look through our website, which Neville created, as it has loads of information, including pictures, about what the group has been up to.
Our rides were usually on Sundays, with some weekend events. Our day rides (usually on the 4th Sunday of each month) were normally around 40 miles long (less in colder weather) and we invariably stopped for coffee, lunch and tea. In past years we have also organised Family/Easy Rides of 20 to 30 miles between April and October (usually on the 1st Sunday of each month), but have currently dropped these rides as there seemed to not be a need for them. Ride starting places were anywhere in south east England, to allow a variety of areas to be covered - possibly by driving for those with cars, or by starting near a railway station.
