He is one of three blind active duty officers who serves in the U.S. Army and the only blind officer serving in the United States Army Special Forces. Castro currently serves on active duty at the Special Operations Recruiting Battalion as the Assistant Operations Officer /Total Army Involvement Recruiting Coordinator.

Fortunately for us, Ivan will be riding with us on Saturday, November 12. Please join us as we welcome him for a few spins around the Park with our riders.

We had previously hoped to do a 60-mile ride leaving from our meeting place at 90th St. Instead, we are going to keep this ride within Central Park.

Riding with the captains of Blackrock

This past Friday was a lovely day in Central Park – perfect for some tandem riding and a picnic lunch with new friends from BlackRock.  Ten new captains received their captain training from Matt Malina, then met our stokers and set off to tour the Park for a few hours.

A picnic lunch under the magnificent elm trees in the East Meadow followed.

Thanks to InTandem stoker Jasmin Sethi for arranging the day and to Manny Frontini from BlackRock for managing their team.  As usual,  InTandem den mother Susan Elefant made sure everything else went smoothly, which it did.
