THE STORY:

Peter Smith wrote -

My name is Peter Alan Smith and I'm excited to be riding in the inaugural Double Up 4 Vision event! I have retinitis pigmentosa which is a progressive genetic degeneration of the retinal tissues at the back of the eye. It is still incurable and I am blind.  I have been riding tandem bikes since the mid-1990's and have also run the Boston Marathon several times. I'm a trust administrator at John Hancock Financial Services and also an Executive in Residence Professor at the College of Charleston School of Business. I'm riding 40 miles with my pilot, David Purcell, and we will be the first team to ride on April 20th from 7 to 11pm through Charleston, across the Ravenel Bridge, through Mt. Pleasant and Sullivan's Island, over and back twice! I would greatly appreciate your encouragement and financial support! Please check out this website and video for more information about me and about how being blind does not need to stop a person from being active.   http://www.americanownews.com/story/15676035/blindness-doesnt-stop-cyclist
