For any Eyecycle visually impaired riders who are interested in trying tandem racing, here is some information on some upcoming races which will have a tandem category. Three races coming up are Castle Pines Best on Hess June 14, State Time Trial Championships in Keensberg on June 28 and State Games in Salida on July 18th. If anyone is interested in trying these races you can go to www.coloradocycling.org for more information. Click on Events, then Races only, then scroll to the date and there is a flyer for the race to click on. If you need any help in registering, please contact Randie at firstname.lastname@example.org If you have your own captain you should start practicing. If you need a captain, please contact Randie. Some of the racers on the Primal Racing team have indicated that they may be able to help. The sooner you hook up with a captain, the better. Bicycle Racing of Colorado has agreed to waive some of the fees such as the one day fee if you do not have a BRAC license, however, the standard racing fee for each race will have to be paid by the participant. There may be more tandem races later in the season and if there is any interest we will let you know those dates and places. Any questions you can contact Randie
As the cycling season gets going there are great opportunities for participating in time trials. These trials give you the chance to test your skills and give you feedback on how you are doing in reaching your goals.
There will be a time trial in Salida on Friday July 18th, as well as June 14 at Castle Pines Best on Hess race, and June 28 which is the State Time Trial Championships in Keensberg.
If you are interested in being a captain or stoaker for these events please send an e mail to email@example.com.
Eye Cycle had its first ride of the season on Sunday May 4th and it was a blast. Ten tandems went out, including several new captains and stoakers. We rode to the REI store in downtown Denver from the Colorado Center for the Blind in Littleton. On the way back we stopped for lunch and conversation. The ride was a great success.
If you are interested in joining us in a future ride please check out our schedule. To sign up for a ride just send an e mail to the captain for that week. If it’s your first time no worries, just let the captain know this and we’ll be happy to work with you to get you started in setting the road on fire.
General questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eyecycle Colorado invites you to share the Love! It is time to share your love of cycling with our visually impaired and blind community.
We team up sighted captains with blind stokers (seated on back of tandem) to ride as a team on recreational planned rides.
If you already love to cycle, then it is a gift to share the sport and Eyecycle will train you to be a captain in just one or two rides. We already own a fleet of tandems and now we just need the support of our sighted cycling friends to come and join the fun!
Please view our web site for ride schedule and contact information.
It is a fabulous year to support Eyecycle since we are celebrating our 20th year in Denver!
