Tandem Diversity NWTR 2015 was presented by the Mount Baker Bicycle Club in Bellingham, WA, July 2-6. There were 814 participants on 419 bikes who enjoyed 4 days of cycling all over Whatcom County and Skagit County. Visiting tandemists were welcomed by over 50 sponsors, nearly 100 volunteers, and the whole town of Bellingham, which was thrilled to see tandems on all the streets, in all the restaurants, and in the hotels, college dorm rooms, and the impromptu campground behind the city’s soccer field.
The rally is summarized in the following 3 reports…
