Welcome to my InTandem fundraiser page - and thank you in advance for supporting InTandem so I can keep pedaling!
I am finishing my third year riding a bicycle again - if you landed on this page, you probably know how much joy and vitality the priceless gift of riding a tandem bike with a sighted captain means to me - as person living with deaf-blindness. Pedaling my heart out on the back of a tandem bicycle is a rare opportunity to simply - well, RIDE1 On a tandem bike, my vision and hearing losses nearly disappear. Wondering where my precious Guide Dog, Gemma is when I'm pedaling? She's back at the benches in Central Park socializing with my teammates, volunteers and other guide dogs, excited when I return, ready to get her hugs and treat.
This summer, I rode in Central Park most Saturday mornings, usually 10-12 miles. I caught a few Thursday evening rides in the Park also, and simply marveled pedaling through the city all the way down to the Brooklyn Bridge during Summer Streets. While my work and accessibility commitments prevent me from having time to prepare for and ride in the Gran Fondo, It's our annual fundraiser - so I'd be most grateful if you will contribute to InTandem to fund my fourth year and if we get everyone pitching in - let's raise enough for more riders, too! I am very good at introductions visually impaired people to InTandem, so they can enjoy the camaraderie and thrill of riding with the team.
Here's what your donation will help provide:
- $50 will pay one entry fee for an organized riding event.
- $100. will pay for new tires on one tandem bike.
- $500 will help support a tandem team’s season of riding.
- $2,500 will buy a new Cannondale tandem and provide the joy of riding to many other InTandem cyclists. This tandem bike can have a plaque with your name on it.
Thank you for your continued support of our programs.
