2014 Prairie State Tandem Rally: June 27 – 29

sponsored by the Chicago Area Tandem Society (CATS)


Come ride with the CATS in the beautiful Rock River Valley of north-central Illinois. As many of you know, the CATS will be hosting the Midwest Tandem Rally in September 2015 in the lovely town of Rockford, IL. So this year, we decided to hold our CATS Prairie State Tandem Rally (PSTR) in Rockford so we can all get to know the town and area a bit better J We will be biking 2gether on Friday, Saturday and Sunday with planned scenic routes of various distances.


For PSTR 2014, we have reserved 25 king rooms for Friday & Saturday nights at the highly ranked Fairfield Inn & Suites with a group rate of $99 which includes the all-important free hot breakfast! The hotel also has a pool and hot tub for your enjoyment. We will be allowed to bring our bikes into our rooms if desired; we were told we just “can’t ride them in the lobby”!!


The Fairfield Inn & Suites is located at 7651 Walton St, Rockford, IL 61108. For reservations, call the hotel at 815-398-7400 and mention the CATS Tandem Bicycle group. Rooms must be booked by May 28 to receive the special CATS rate. No charge for the rally; CATS membership is required ($12 per team).


Please send Susan an email (susan.pribyl@gmail.com) to let us know that you are planning to attend PSTR and if you’ve reserved a room at the Fairfield. Thanks!
