Portugal Tandem Trip – April 2024

Wife Sue and I had a tandem cycling trip to Portugal that was hosted by Santana Tandem Adventures.  The trip had us river cruising down the Douro River; starting in Porto.  We’ve been on over a dozen Santana trips and the river cruises are always our favorites.  No packing/unpacking with plenty of ride options, culture and fellow tandem couples.  We met our Kansas City tandeming friends on the trip along with approximately 120 fellow cruisers/bikers.  Over the years, Santana has adapted to more ebikes and fewer tandems; with the ratio now about 60:40.  Years back, there were only a couple single bikes and all tandems.   We really enjoyed Portugal; the weather was brisk in the mornings (50’s) and would...

Toy Drive

It's time for our annual Holiday Toy Drive. Our donations will be given through Interfaith Community Services, a charity with a 4 out of 4 star rating. They provide supportive housing for over 2,000 individuals in North County. The toys you donate will go to 125 families who have case managers to assist them with reaching goals toward self sufficiency. You can help these children have a Merry Christmas by donating a new unwrapped toy. Gifts for 11-13 year olds are especially needed (e.g. arts & crafts sets, gadgets, sports). Your donation will be collected at the start of the club rides on Saturday, December 9, or it can be brought to our Holiday Party on the same day. Thank you for your support.
