October was WA Bike Month and WATCAC joined Western Australia’s cycling community to celebrate big time! The Western Australian Tandem Cycling Advisory Council (WATCAC) hosted its second tandem muster, supported by the WA Department of Transport and WestCycle. Emphasizing the accessibility of tandem cycling, it was an open invitation extended to all comers. The event was made possible by Perth’s blind and vision-impaired tandem cycling community.
A fabulous group of dedicated cyclists joined our recent tandem pilot clinic held at the George Burnett Recreation Centre. The clinic focussed on how to ride on the front seat of a tandem, as the pilot. The eighteen trainees had backgrounds in touring, recreational, road, mountain and competition cycling, including some tandem cyclists!
