Tandem is one of the most well known traditions in Lund and over a thousand students participate in the event! Nations, student unions and other associations go by bus to Gothenburg and race each other down to Lund using only tandem bikes. The experience lasts approximately 36 hours with several party stops on the way. You will get the chance to compete against the weather and the other teams in an unforgettable race.

Tandem occurs every year with the exception of the years when Lundakarnevalen is held. Keep a lookout for more information on our social media, if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact event@samvetet.lu.se. We are currently assessing the interest of student on this event:

Tandem Generals

Tandem is organised centrally by Idrottskollegiet and each participating organisation has Tandem generals who handle the work. Tandem generals work alongside the Event Coordinator to plan and carry out the event and in exchage, they get to join tandem for free! The tandem generals main responsibilities are planning the experience for Samhällsvetarkåren’s students and act as coordinators during the actual Tandem days on the bus. The generals plan the marketing of the event, ticket release, theme, outfits, food shopping, games on the bus and some logistical details for the day.

During Tandem, generals are in charge of coordinating the riders and making sure rules and traffic regulations are followed. This means that they are expected to be sober and aware of the traffic regulations as well as rules provided by Idrottskollegiet (IK) and to assist students participating if the various rules are not understood. Tandem generals are usually recruited in early March and then meet about once a week to plan the event, which takes place in early May.
