Awful news for two members of one of our partner organizations, the San Diego Blind Stokers’ Club: Harry and Nicole DeRochement have had their tandem bicycle stolen from their La Mesa home. Nicole, who is blind and participated in the BSC’s Cycling for Sight fundraiser to benefit SDCB this year, and Harry were given the bike as a gift and have been using it to train for upcoming fundraising rides. If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of the bike, you can call La Mesa Police at (619) 667-1400. The couple stressed that they just want the bike returned and that, should the thief have a change of heart and bring it back, no questions will be asked.

Members of the Blind Stoker's Club have also set up a fundraising page where you can donate to help get Nicole and Harry a new tandem bike.
