Newsgroups of Interest to Tandemists


Tandem@Hobbes: Largest Tandem Specific Listserver on the Internet


Double_Forte: A Yahoo Groups Based Listserver for Tandem Mountain Biking Enthusiasts


BICYCLE NEWSGROUPS: Although not dedicated to tandems, sometimes quite informational.

Note Regarding Newsgroups: These groups are linked; however, it is unlikely that you're web browser's E-mail server will recognize them. To subscribe to these groups you just need to go to your Internet Service Provider's (ISP) News Server and download the Newsgroup listing. You'll find literally thousands of newsgroups listed. Just scroll down until you find the server for 'rec.'

Open it by clicking on the "twistee" (triangle) next to the server's name. It will "blow-down" into a very large sub-listing of Newsgroups. You want to scroll down to the one entitled: >rec.bicycles (8) and can then blow that one down to see all eight of the rec.bicycle groups. Follow the instructions for your software to subscribe to and participate in these groups.
