How it Works

Tandem biking (on a bicycle for 2), with a pilot, makes getting active in the great outdoors with friends, family, and peers more accessible for individuals with vision loss.

A pilot rides in front, steering, shifting gears, and communicating effectively with the stoker (person riding on the back seat).

Ways to Ride with Us 

Loan a Bike – We have 3 tandem bikes available for short & long-term loans to individuals with vision loss. We provide riding and safety instruction and a roster of trained volunteer pilots, or ride with a sighted friend or family member. Please contact us with a minimum of 72 hours notice.

Group Rides – We host group rides and attend community events, too. It’s a fun way to get outdoors and get active and everyone’s welcome!
