In 2012 I retired my single bicycle. After a concussion resulting from a fall off my bicycle it was time to find another way to bicycle. With my bad central vision things come up on me too quickly when riding. After an internet search I discovered the Blind Stokers Club here in San Diego. Now with my partner and pilot Kevin Knapp I can still ride all over the place and not worry about seeing the road ahead. I can pedal on the back of the tandem and enjoy bike riding again.
Kevin and I will be riding in the 17th Cycling For Sight event this year. It is a 2 day tour and fundraiser all in one. If you are able to support me in this endeavor please consider a donation; any amount is appreciated.
Gary! It's been great riding with you via Zoom for Saturday Morning Spin, because every time I look at you, you are quietly pedaling away and it makes me realize that I've gotta stop chatting and get my own legs moving. It'll be great to ride with you and Kevin next week in real time!
