Coventry Visually Impaired and Sighted Tandem Association
We aim to:
- enable the Visually Impaired to discover and enjoy the pleasures of cycling. We promote and encourage Tandem Bicycle riding for both leisure and competitive interests
- create a social "fun" atmosphere whereby Visually Impaired and Sighted people can relax and enjoy each other's company, make friends and enjoy healthy exercise.
- encourage Family participation in all our activities
Rides take place mostly on weekday evenings but we also organise weekend rides, which can involve us in transporting both Tandems and Riders to more distant venues – for example Rutland Water. We have our own equipment for the use of members, which is augmented by pilots who prefer to use their own tandems for club activities.
We also have a varied Social Programme, particularly during the winter months. Activities include Quiz nights, Speakers, Beer and Skittle matches and Theatre
