The TRAILBLAZERS Tandem Cycling Club, a registered charity, provides recreational cycling to people who have limited or no vision, the opportunity to cycle with sighted volunteers on our tandems (bicycles built for two.)
About Our Charity
The TRAILBLAZERS Tandem Cycling club has been in operation since Summer 1987.
The TRAILBLAZERS Board of Directors and organization membership is largely blind and vision impaired persons. Members and volunteers arrange through our Ride Convener impromptu to recreational rides. In addition, scheduled group rides, orientations, day and out of town weekend trips are integral events in our club, as are social events such as Bar-B-Q's and banquets. Some of these scheduled rides include fund-raising for other charities, such as Ride for Rouge and the Becel Ride for Heart.
Safety is always a concern and orientation sessions are provided for new members and volunteers. All of our tandems are well maintained and tool kits are provided at the storage sights for small repairs. For more extensive adjustments or repairs we send bikes out to a qualified mechanic.
