Blind Sports Nova Scotia’s recreational Tandem Bike Club is hosting a try-it day and we’d love you to join us!
Do you or does someone you know have vision loss and an interest in tandem biking? Are you a cycling enthusiast and want to make biking accessible for people with vision loss in your community while having a lot of fun?
Did we mention that we’re excited about the prospect of blind hockey coming to Halifax? Check out this recent interview with Accessible Media (AMI) Audio’s Live From Studio 5 about just that, including Blind Sports NS Chair, Peter Parsons.
“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.” John F. Kennedy
We’ve got 3 tandem bikes available for short & long-term loans. If you or someone you know has vision loss and wants to borrow one of our bikes or/and join us for friendly group ride, please message us or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll show you the ropes, offer a roster of capable volunteer pilots, and have helmets to get you started! Can’t wait to hear from you!
