Samhällsvetarkåren does Tandem
Uppdaterad: 9 maj 2019
Life's a beach; exams, stress... but we've got your back!
On the 10th of May we'll pack our beach umbrellas and sunblock and set sail to Gothenburg to take part in Tandem 2019. Our fin-tastic tandem team will then race back to Lund, just in time for an amazing celebration. Water you waiting for? Cycle, compete and party with Samhällsvetarkåren. You will not regret it!
What is Tandem? Every year a big tandem bike race is arranged from Gothenburg to Lund, and all nations and student unions are invited to take part in search of glory- or just a good time!
How long does it take? Tandem starts the 10th May at noon when we start our road trip to Gothenburg! Then that evening the big race begins, and our teams cycle all through the night. There are food stops, a midnight disco, and a lot of exciting games throughout the trip, until it all ends in a big party in Lundagård Saturday evening
How hard is it to be a rider in Tandem? If you're worried you have to be a champion cyclist do not worry. The route from Gothenburg to Lund is split in to 20 sections, so you only cycle a short time (around 2 miles) before you return to the party bus as a hero! And you cycle in pairs, so its much easier than cycling alone.
Do you have to cycle? No! There are options for whatever floats your boat. There will be tickets for riders and for supporters- so whether you like to cheer from the sidelines or be the MVP there is a role for you.
What is our theme? Haven't you guessed from our endless puns? Samhällsvetarkåren is taking our team on an amazing beach party!
