Two sets of pedals but only one bicycle
A man pilots a tandem bicycle along a busy path with a young boy in the second seat“Founded in 2007, Blind Stokers is the largest and most active tandem club for blind riders in the country, according to the U.S. Blind Tandem Cycling Connection.” Dorothy Deans was at our Center when she heard about the club and decided to get involved.

After a pair of strokes took most of her vision, Dorothy decided to adapt and thrive. She is now 83 and riding regularly with one of three pilots she was paired with.

Read more about Dorothy and her love of riding in this article.
