Were you there last month for the fun and camaraderie that took place at Napa’s Cycle for Sight? It was a gorgeous day for a ride and the event was a huge success in part because of the wonderful volunteers who piloted tandem bikes with our blind participants.
This is the third time Jerry Edwards has ridden tandem in Cycle for Sight. He said, “My riding partners have active, joyful lives, and it’s a privilege to ride with them. I’ve learned so much through our cycling conversations…”
Ready to ride? It’s not too late to meet your health goals for 2015 – you can get in on the action and get moving right now. The weather’s perfect and summer is all about being active and outdoors. Get a leg up by piloting a tandem bike with an enthusiastic LightHouse student today.
Riding on a tandem with a blind partner is only one of the many activity related volunteer opportunities you’ll find through our Fitness Partner program. Working with a LightHouse Fitness Partner could help you be your healthiest self yet. Our volunteers bring with them a wide range of experiences and will work with you to get and keep you moving.
