FAQs

Q1:Who is sponsoring the SWTR 2020 Rally?
A1: The Texas Capital Area Tandem Society (TxCATS) tandem cycling club is this year’s sponsor.

Q2: Will there be a pre-rally event?
A2: YES. The pre-rally will be limited to 25 teams who are also attending the rally in Kerrville. The pre-rally will be based in Fredericksburg, TX. Supported rides will be offered on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (April 13th – 16th). Each day’s ride will begin from and return to Fredericksburg.

Q3: Why is the pre-rally limited to 25 teams?
A3: The pre-rally is hosted by a small sub-set of the TxCATS club. Therefore we have to limit the number of teams. It is also a great opportunity to meet and get to know other tandem teams in a smaller setting. Increasing the number of teams attending taxes the local infrastructure (restaurants, etc.) and degrades that experience.

Q4: Why is the pre-rally limited to teams who are also attending the rally in Kerrville?
A4: The pre-rally is not a separate event but is part of the SWTR 2020. When you make new friends at the pre-rally, you then have an immediate opportunity to see them again and perhaps meet more of their friends at the rally.

Q5: What is included in the price of the rally?
A5: The price of the rally is $250 per tandem team. We provide Ride with GPS routes and cue sheets for three days of riding with SAG by House of Tandems, lunch on Saturday, and a social hour/banquet dinner on Saturday. You are responsible for your own lodging and other meals. Breakfast is included in the Y.O. Ranch rally room rate of $109.

Q6: What is included in the price of the pre-rally?
A6: We have set the price of the pre-rally at $180 per tandem team to cover actual expenses to provide rest stops and SAG by House of Tandems. The price is set based on the minimum number of 15 teams attending. If we have more than 15 teams attend the pre-rally, the costs will be less and we will issue refunds for the excess amount. You are responsible for your lodging and all meals at the pre-rally event in Fredericsburg.

Q7: What day should I plan to arrive for the rally?
A7: You should check-in on Thursday April 16th if you plan to ride on Friday.

Q8: What day should I plan to arrive for the pre-rally?
A8: You should check-in on Monday April 13th if you plan to ride on Tuesday.
