Sunday 3 Oct 2021: New Stoker (VI) Clinic
Starting at 8:30am at Technology Park West, Kensington, this two hour session will provide you with an introduction to riding on the back of a tandem bicycle.
You will learn how to mount, start, stop and ride on the back of a tandem bike (as the “stoker”). We will take time to familiarise and orientate new riders to a tandem placed on a stationary trainer. From there you will be matched with an experienced and sighted tandem rider (your pilot) for a guided practical session. You will be in a safe riding environment and no previous cycling experience is required. There will also be ample opportunity to chat with tandem cyclists about their riding experiences.
Please register your interest using the Contact Us page by 24th September.
Sunday 31 Oct 2021: Annual General Meeting (AGM) Ride
Save the date for our AGM proceeded by a morning rec ride. More details soon.
