Steve Baskis: Blind Tandem Cyclist and now a Himalayan Mountain Climber

Steve Baskis participated in the Soldiers to the Summit 2010 Himalayan Expedition.  They summited Lobuche East at 20,075 feet.  The support team included Erik Weinhenmayer, the only blind person to have summited Mount Everest, and the first blind person to finish the toughest mountain bike race on the planet, the Leadville 100, on a tandem mountain bike.  

Steve loves to go fast on a tandem bike.  Here's Steve (on the right) with his tandem captain, Jamie Alvord, at the 2010 USA Paralympic Cycling National Championships.  Steve is a registered stoker on our website.  Read Steve's story.  Contact him to go for a ride!
