Mechanical Support

MTR 2024 will have mechanical support available during all rides, but we’d also suggest that you come to the ride with your tandem in good condition.  If you have a breakdown during the ride, you’ll be able to contact a dedicated local shop mechanic, thanks to Bike World Iowa and Kyle’s Bikes,  and they’ll come to your location to provide reasonable repairs at your location at normal shop pricing.  If the tandem is unrideable, they’ll be able to get the tandem and team back to the hotel. If work is needed after the ride, one of the expo vendors, Tandems East,  will have mechanics available to do some limited repair work to get you ready for the next day’s ride and also give your tandem a quick safety check.

Electrical Charging Availability 

Approximately six (6) 120V electrical outlets will be available at the Saturday and Sunday lunch and afternoon breaks. Usage will not be monitored or metered, so availability is not guaranteed. Users must provide their own battery chargers

As E-bike battery charging usually requires several hours, we encourage e-bike riders to have their batteries fully charged prior to the ride.
