InTandem is all about sharing the delights of cycling with someone who may be blind, deaf or have physical or learning difficulties. Volunteers are in control of the bike and share the pedalling with the other rider. We ride with a really friendly local group who love to have new faces to talk to.
Volunteers can ride with the group at weekends, typically one Saturday and one Sunday a month. Rides are on quiet roads and bike paths and take approximately 4 hours - it's a very leisurely pace with lots of chatting and a stop or two for lunch, time also includes setting up bikes and putting them away, no need to be an elite athlete here. It's also a fantastic way to explore the local area, Loughborough is surrounded by some lovely countryside and most of the routes are designed to avoid big hills! We also offer short taster rides on Wednesday mornings as part of a disability sport session held at the leisure centre in town.
Volunteers will have the opportunities to have a go on the tandems before venturing out on a ride and we have helmets you can borrow if you don't have your own.
