Does anyone know of a tandem club or a local touring club, in the Tampa St. Pete area?

Tourista...
There has not been a true "touring" club in the area as far as I know until now. I have established the Trail Travelers to fill that void. I have been touring for the last few years and have worked at bike shops for several and I thought the lack of community in the touring scene needed to be addressed because there ARE some great trails and rides in the area, and there are several people interested in doing multi-day rides... if you are interested in becoming a member go to the facebook page and watch for updates until i get a proper website online. the facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/pages/Trail-Travelers-Bicycle-Touring-Club/283411136492?ref=ts

I look forward to hearing from you!

You make also want to look up Suncoast cycling club.  They are a huge bike club but in the Palm Harbor area.  There are lots of club rides to choose from with all different levels.  They have several tandems in the club.
