BOISE, IDAHO now has a tandem captain signed up on bicyclingblind.org!
Yahoo! In Boise, two visually impaired stokers created profiles on our website in 2011. They have been waiting five years for a tandem captain to sign up, so they can go for a bike ride. Yes, five long years.
Then, along comes James Hickey. He moved from California to Boise last month, found the stokers on the map, and made the connection. Snow is on the ground, so they are starting their connection with cross country skiing.
Thanks, James, for sharing the ride in your new home state of Idaho! We here at Bicycling Blind Los Angeles will miss your wit and good humor.
