Bike Valentine 2014: Volunteer to Ride a Tandem for the Visually Impaired!

Let's show the love and volunteer as captains on tandem bicycles to give rides to the visually impaired for Intandem.org, a non-profit that provides access to tandem bicycle rides to visually impaired or otherwise disabled athletes YEAR-ROUND! Sign up to volunteer today!

From InTandem.org:
"You can lock your bikes in the trailer and we'll all ride tandems up to 90th and 5th where the stokers will be waiting.  New Captains, RSVP ([masked]) for more information and to setup a pre-ride training. "

8:45AM: Meet in Central Park at the Boathouse Cafe for coffee.
8:55AM: Ride to New Captain Orientation.
9:00AM: Orientation begins promptly at 90th and 5th Avenue within Central Park.

Rider Level:
As you are going to be the driver for a visually impaired passenger on a tandem bicycle, riders who are skilled, confident, and outgoing are best suited for this volunteer gig.
***If you have never ridden a tandem bicycle, then arriving on time for the 9AM orientation is a MUST!

What to Bring: helmets, warm layers, water, locks for bikes, money for incidentals, and your best smile!

RSVP: [masked].  As this is an InTandembike.org gig, we all MUST RSVP to this e-mail address!

If you ever needed an excuse to get out of bed on a winter morning and ride, can you think of a better one than this one?!

We'll be there, join us!

    I'd love to volunteer, but I need to know how long the ride lasts as I have to be at work by 12.
