Hi folks! I'm Fred Chambers of the Beach Cities
Chapter and also the Ag and Equestrian Division
of the NFB, among other things! One of my
hobbies is tandem cycling, and I've ridden with
the Blind Stokers Club a bit, including two of
their Cycling for Sight events. It's always an
adventure when I head out on a tandemf, and in my
thousands of miles I've survived without any injuries to speak of.
Very recently, I received the following
invitation for this July's Cycling for
Sight. It'll be in my backyard, Northern San
Diego County -- and I encourage anyone and
everyone who likes biking to sign-up. You still
have 4-months to go, so if you need a reason to
stick to a New Years Resolution, you've got it!
The Blind Stokers Club or BSC is full of
wonderful, amazing, fun, and funny people. Read
on, and seriously consider getting involved.
Yours, Stoker Fred
