What’s your best cycling memory? My best Cycle for Sight member was 21 years ago.  We were doing 50 miles. It was a big challenge going up that big hill! A big  shower came in the middle of our ride and we went to a winery  for shelter. They treated us with great food and good wine.

When was your first Cycle for Sight? My first Cycle for Sight is on April 22nd, 2017 and I am currently at stoke level 11 (on a 10 point scale).

Why do you love riding in Cycle for Sight? I want to support more people having access to two things that I love: cycling and the great outdoors.  I have little tandem experience and thought this would be a great reason to take on a new challenge with fun people to share it with.  I also enjoy music, wine, and food, and I am told that I will find all three at the end of the ride.

What’s your best cycling memory? It was a great day when a childhood friend showed me how to stick baseball cards in my bike spokes, which makes a bike sound like a cartoon motorcycle when the wheels turn.  We terrorized the neighborhood on our “Harleys” for several days following the discovery.

What’s your favorite quote? “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” – Hunter S. Thompson

When was your first Cycle for Sight? My first Cycle 4 Sight was 2016.

Why do you love riding in Cycle for Sight? I like the ride because it gives me the chance to do some serious miles again since losing my sight.

What’s your best cycling memory? My favorite cycling memory is tough to decide, having had so many over the course of 40,000 miles of bike touring, but I would have to pick my 1976 ride up the 142-mile Icefields Parkway from Banff to Jasper National Parks in the Canadian Rockies.  The scenery was incredible, and the weather was perfect.  It was the highlight of my 1900-mile Bicentennial tour of the Canadian Rockies and vicinity.

What’s your favorite quote? “Good judgement is the result of experience, and experience is the result of bad judgement.”

When was your first Cycle for Sight? It’s my first time.

Why do you love riding in Cycle for Sight? Riding my bike in traffic to get to work just doesn’t cut it.  I can’t wait to be riding for a great cause, in the countryside, surrounded by great people, smelling vineyard, and sharing stories with my tandem-buddy.

What’s your best cycling memory? I learned to ride my bike pretty late compared to my friends. When I did it opened up my world and I spent my days exploring my neighborhood and rolling down hills.

When was your first Cycle for Sight? Never! I’m fresh as the morning dew.

Why do you love riding in Cycle for Sight? As Communications Director at LightHouse, I made this promo video, and it was so convincing that I actually convinced myself! I loved riding bikes as a kid but have not ridden since I became legally blind, and now I’m realizing there’s no reason for me to stop! I am a little nervous about learning tandem though.

What’s your best cycling memory? Riding the river paths between Sebastopol and Santa Rosa, where I grew up. I also loved just riding around the neighborhood with my friends as a kid.

What’s your favorite quote? “There’s got to be more to life than having everything.”

Rider gives an enthusiastic thumbs up as he pedals up a hillside

When was your first Cycle for Sight? This will be my first.

Why do you love riding in Cycle for Sight? It will be something new for me and I’m excited to be a part of it.

What’s your best cycling memory? Riding from Walnut Creek up Mt. Diablo then up Mt. Hamilton and ending at San Jose Caltrain station with a group of 10 guys in San Francisco Cycling Club. 117 miles and 11k feet of climbing.  I hit energy lows on that ride and then had a feeling I will never forget when at the top of Hamilton and on the train (with beers and burrito in-hand) on our way back to SF.

What’s your favorite quote? If you’re feeling comfortable then you’re avoiding the challenge to reach success.
