  • My cell phone on the day of the event is[masked]
  • Please join us as a volunteer for a day of tandem biking with the Carroll Center for the Blind.

    Volunteers needed to ride with a visually impaired individual.


    Time has been changed to 1-3pm due to inclement weather predicted for the morning.

    We expect a good portion of the 2 hours will be spent learning how to ride a tandem with a visually impaired/blind individual on the back of the bike in a safe area such as a parking lot.  For this 1st event with the Carroll Center, we don't expect their to be much riding.

    Saturday is looking a bit wet. Is this event still on?

      So far, it's a go....

      ...and you are quite sure that it's okay for people with no tandem experience? :)

    I worked as a mechanic for a sighted captain/blind stoker married couple who rode across the United States. I would love to be involved in something like this!

    If you need another captain, my husband is very good at this and would be happy to do it. We have a Co Motion tandem and would be willing to participate. We live close by in Newton so let us know.

    I have been getting lessons captaining the tandem from my friend Ed. He has lent me his sturdy tandem so that I may practice for this event. If there is anyone who would like to practice with me for this event, please let me know.

    I would love to do this, but it falls on a day that I can't. I'm one of the tandem guys at Belmont Wheelworks, if I can help in any way or offer my knowledge of tandems, please don't hesitate to ask.

    This sounds like a great event. Do you have an idea as to when the end time will be?

    I have a visually impaired friend who I'd love to have do this, as I am an avid biker. I have been trying to find more information about activities she could be more involved with. She is in her 50's but active, and did attend Carroll.
