When you are not riding tandems, what are you doing? Looking to be a dog walker/ trainer and trying to stay out of trouble (hehe).
How did you join InTandem? Through the JCC (Jewish Community Center) of Manhattan, via their Adapations program.
Favorite Ride to date? My second ride ever with Olivia.
Advice for New Captains? communicate to us, tell us when your stopping, going and shifting and COME BACK we need more captains (especially Thursday nights).
Advice for New Stokers? Tell them if you want to go slower or faster… And if you have an individual need tell them. And HAVE FUN! and come back.
One thing you think everyone should know about InTandem? It is open to anyone with any type of disability. It is a great way to make friends and have fun (Ok 3 things).
How has InTandem affected your life? Honestly I am soo much more happier that I have been in a long time, and since I never learned how to ride a bike as a kid I am now 35 and I can ride a bike without crashing. 🙂
If you could share a Tandem with anyone, who would it be? Billy Joel (The Piano Man).
Anything to add? I love love you guys, and since I have full vision, I can not wait to learn how to ride a bike on my own, and thank you so much.
