Tandem Cycling with the Blind Stokers Club – Episode 57 of The Blind Sport Podcast

When was the last time that you rode a bike? Can you remember how great that felt?

Being part of a tandem team of sighted captain and blind stoker is pretty amazing. Whether your goal is to improve your fitness, to cycle at a competitive level or just have a bit of weekend fun, riding a tandem could be the sport for you.

In episode 57 we chat with Dave White (Club Director and sighted tandem captain) and Andy Granda(DeafBlind Stoker) from the Blind Stokers Club in San Diego about their club and how this organisation is supporting the blind and Vision Impaired to enjoy the sport of Tandem Cycling.

For more information or to contact the Blind Stokers Club visit their website www.blindstokersclub.org or follow the Blind Stokers Club on Facebook.

This is a great conversation and I hope you find it both informative and entertaining.

I also include some motivational quotations.

  1. Kiwi Mike, thanks for pushing the BSP envelope with 4-way interview, to include pilot and stoker roles in the BSC, and ASL interpreter for conversation with ANdy. It was a pleasure to share ourselves with your audience, and we appreciate the extra effort to make Podcast 57 accessible to fans who are unable to hear the audio. Reaching high often brings rich rewards.
