InTandem Rides for Visually Impaired Athletes

Here’s a great organization for you to provide tandem rides for visually impaired or otherwise disabled athletes.

InTandem.org

More about them:
Intandem is a non-profit organization that provides access to tandem bicycle rides to visually impaired or otherwise disabled athletes. Artie Elefant decide to start the tandem program after being inspired by a young woman giving rides to people around central park on her tandem bike. She and a friend were doing this regularly, and Artie thought it could really turn into something good. Artie made some phone calls, and the tandems were set to ride the Five Boro Bike Tour. They stored the bikes in the Central Park boat house until they acquired a trailer. After partnering for many years with Achilles International, Artie and friends decided it was time to go their own way. InTandem was born.

Find out how you can get involved at their upcoming meet and greet.
