Northwest Tandem Rally

Albany Oregon

(Main event days are Saturday, July 29 thru Monday, July 2)

Ever wondered what it would be like to ride with 200 to 300 other tandems? This is your chance!

Here’s a historic tidbit for you: Co-Motion debuted its first tandem at the Northwest Tandem Rally in Tacoma, WA in 1988. Needless to say, Co-Motion and NWTR have been best friends ever since. NWTR continues to be one of the largest, competing with the Midwest Tandem Rally for the title. Albany, Oregon is a superb site for this year’s rally, with miles of beautiful roads, superb scenery and points of interest that you’re sure to enjoy. Mid Valley Wheelmen, the host club for Albany’s rally has hosted more NWTR’s than any other club in the northwest, and they do a wonderful job. We’ll be there to ride with you and show off a few bicycles while supporting NWTR.


Stay tuned for more events…
