Grand Rapids hosts Midwest Tandem Rally
The Rockford Squire | By Staff
From uprights and recumbents, to trikes and triples, 281 tandem bicycles will be cruising around West Michigan at the 43rd Midwest Tandem Rally Aug. 31 to Sept. 3 – the largest tandem bicycle event in North America.
Organized by the Michigan United Tandem Society (MUTS) with support from the West Michigan Sports Commission, this event comes to Michigan for the sixth time, and Grand Rapids for the third time (previously here in 2005 and 1987). Michigan also is one of only four Midwest states that has hosted the event six times since its inception in 1976 (in addition to Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin).
