THE STORY:

Who I am

I am Kim Paulk. My personal miracle worker and trusty guide dog, Gemma, and I enjoy InTandem all year round. We are supporting Team InTandem and you can bet the dog house that we will be on site on Sept. 13th -  cheering on the whole team. I am looking forward to rebuilding my strength (from an injury) for future Gran Fondo rides. I am training now to ride in Tour de Bronx next month, with your support.

Why I Ride with InTandem

In the off chance you haven't already heard directly from me how riding stoker (the back seat) with InTandem and the amazing volunteer captains, makes my spirits soar, I'm letting you know now. Living with deaf-blindness (I have tunnel vision and hearing loss, due to Usher Syndrome, type II), well, it almost disappears when I ride. I don't need a white cane, and Gemma is resting and socilaizing with the other guide dogs and their wonerful volunteer 'dog-sitters', while I cycle around... Central Park... Summer Streets down Park Avenue (my personal favorite)... and well... many wonderful locations all around the area.

What InTandem Achieves

InTandem does all the work, so I can simply relax and enjoy a day visiting with old friends, and making new ones. Riding on a tandem means I'm never alone. And the captains? I give them the amplifying mike to my hearing aids, and I give me a personal guided tour as we pedal. It's a blast getting to know them and hear their view of the world around me. There are such interesting life stories and sharing how tandem cycling brings joy to each volunteer and member. Your support empowers this unique opportunity - for people with disabilities to be outdoors, participating in a healthy physical and social activity.

How your contribution helps

InTandem is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization that provides tandem cycling programs and opportunities to people with disabilities.  You can help by supporting InTandem financially which will allow us to continue providing these fun, healthy and important services throughout the year. It buys and maintains our cycling equipment and all expenses involved in making this activity keep pedaling!

If you can't contribute - come volunteer - or do both! Either way - THANK YOU!
