Pedal Power’s Fitability program offers tandem cycling opportunities to vision impaired people in the Canberra region, as well as to those with other disabilities who would otherwise be unable to cycle independently. Even if you have never ridden a bike before, or are not able to ride confidently because of vision loss or another disability, you can try out riding on a tandem. An experienced pilot steers the bike and controls the gears and braking.
We will arrange an easy first ride with you on quiet streets or cycle paths. We can answer all of your questions and practice basic tandem cycling skills. If you enjoy your first ride you can talk with your pilot about the kinds of rides available and how you would like to join in. If you need assistance to get to our activities we can often organise for a pilots to pick you up on the way and bring you home.
Always wanted to be a pilot? If you are a confident rider you can try out tandem piloting. Riding a tandem is not very different to riding a single bike and twice the fun!
