InTandem is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization that provides tandem bike riding programs to people with disabilities in the New York City area.  We conduct regular weekly rides on Saturday mornings and Thursday evenings, weather and season permitting, in Central Park and participate frequently in organized rides throughout the New York City area.  

Our members are predominantly individuals with visual or developmental disabilities.  They ride on the back of the tandem bikes. We call them stokers. Our captains, who ride the front seat, are all volunteers from the community.  InTandem pays all related program costs for our stokers and captains.  We also have non-riding volunteer opportunities – from helping at the rides, watching and walking guide dogs, and with management and growth of the organization.  

No prior tandem riding experience is necessary. However, we do ask that our volunteer captains be experienced and confident cyclists, that they be comfortable riding a bike for at least forty miles, and be comfortable riding in NYC traffic. We provide captain training and orientation prior to riding with our members.
