A drizzly cold morning wouldn’t normally draw a cycling crowd but there was no stopping our clinic enthusiasts who came along to our July clinic to learn all about tandem cycling with WATCAC. Our morning program provided an introduction to tandem cycling for both volunteer pilots and blind or vision-impaired stokers of all abilities, in a fun and supportive environment.
Members and friends shared a picnic lunch under crisp winter skies in Kings Park recently. Our Volunteer Picnic was held to thank and recognise all those that help the Association maintain its momentum.
Speaking to the gathering, WATCAC Chair Erin McGlew highlighted the efforts of our volunteer community in enabling the Association to operate and fulfill its objectives. Key areas of effort were recognised including fundraising, tandem cycling clinics and with our riding program.

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.
