You have questions. We have answers. Check out some of the things we are most frequently asked.
What’s the terrain like this year?
We’ve got some hills, and we’ve got some flat spots. We’ve also got some “aerobic opportunities” that you are sure to enjoy.
WHY DO YOU HAVE A RIDER LIMIT?
We limit the size of the rally so that it will be more intimate and personal. Our facilities will only hold so many people. And our sanity gets tested if we make the rally too big.
ARE THERE REST STOPS ON THE ROUTES?
We usually have store stops located at strategic places on the routes. We also give out snacks before each ride begins. If you are a picky eater, you should bring some of your own snacks as well.
DO ANY OF THE CAPTAINS SHAVE THEIR LEGS?
There are some captains who are rumored to have stock in Gillette and Nair. However, the great thing about tandem rallies is that you will always find someone your speed to ride with.
DO YOU HAVE GPS FOR YOUR ROUTES?
GTR was one of the first rallies to offer GPS maps, way back in the early 2000’s. We will have many forms of GPS available, through Ride With GPS.
WHAT DO I DO IF MY BIKE BREAKS DOWN?
We have the services of “tandem whisperer” Ric Becker of House of Tandems at GTR this year. If Ric can’t fix it, you need a new bike!
WHAT’S THE WEATHER IN GEORGIA IN MAY?
Plan on hot weather. Drink lots of water to avoid dehydration and cramps. Expect highs in the upper 80’s and lows in the mid-60’s. We try to start rides at 8:30AM to beat the heat.
WHO DOES EVE’S NAILS?
Eve’s nails are 100% owner maintained. Our guess is that they will match her handlebar tape or the colors of the rally.
WHAT IS THE SQUARE ROOT OF 622,521?
789. Just seeing if you are paying attention.
