U3A Appeal for Tandem Riders

1.       U3A have one member with an amazing Roberts Tandem. Since the loss of her husband 2 years ago and suffering with Sciatica, she needs a lead rider to join her for their rides. She used to ride 20 to 30 miles but admits to being out of practice.


2.       A second member is registered blind. He used to ride a tandem but has not ridden for a few years. His sight allows him to see the landscape but very little detail or midrange clarity. U3A need someone with a tandem who would be willing to take this member out on rides. Alternatively someone who would be willing to loan a Tandem and U3A would find someone to ride with him. This member has some wonderful stories of his youth climbing signposts on his walks to read the directions.


If you are interested or can help with either of the above, please contact Alan Elliott.
