Charlotte’s Tandems

Charlotte’s Tandems | Derbyshire

What we do:

We lend, at no cost (i.e. for free), tandems and tag-alongs to (and only to) people with disabilities or additional needs, who are unable to ride a bike safely on their own, so that they can enjoy the wonders of cycling.

What you need to do:

  • Fill in the Contact Form above and Alex will put you in touch with the nearest Volunteer Helper, shown here.
  • Arrange with the Helper to collect the tandem or tag-along from them.
  • Fill in a Borrower’s Form and hand it to the Helper when you collect the bike.  A large print version is available here.
  • Have fun riding the bike.  Hire is normally at least two months.
  • Send us photos and comments for us to publish on here and elsewhere.
  • Return the bike in a fit state to the Helper at the end of your hire for the next people to ride straight away.

What we don’t (and won’t) do:

For full details on the charity, including lots of photos, see the Charlotte’s Tandems website or Facebook site and to book a tandem please fill out the Contact Form on
