About Us


InTandem is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide tandem cycling programs to people who are blind, have low vision, or cannot ride independently due to other disabilities.


There are few accessible opportunities for people with disabilities to exercise or socialize and we provide both!  


Located in New York City, we welcome you to join our programs and participate in our Rides. 

  • Evening and weekend rides in Central Park, NYC

  • Members are matched with riders of the same skill level.

  • Members are encouraged to use equipment outside scheduled rides and events.

InTandem History

InTandem was founded by Artie Elefant who  lost most of his vision due to retinitis pigmentosa at the age of 47. His vision loss forced him into an early retirement, and motivated Artie and his wife to move to New York City.  Adapting to a new lifestyle was necessary, but Artie was not prepared to give up on biking and running. Artie joined Achilles International where he eventually started the Achilles Tandem Program.

When the Achilles program came to an end,  Artie was determined to fill the void for a disabled community eagerly waiting to get out and ride again. As a result, in 2013, InTandem was born!
