GET READY FOR THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE!

If you have never have ridden a tandem then you're in for a treat. Whether you're blind or not, it is always lots of fun. Before we go any further I want to tell you some basic things you might not know, first off we ride on bicycles made for two also known as a tandem bike. The rider in front is called the "Captain" he steers and controls the bike, and of course, they are sighted. The rider in the rear is referred to as the "Stoker" they provide the extra power; they are usually blind, but sometimes can be mentally handicapped or even deaf. If you would like to learn what exactly the trip includes, just read the next paragraph to find out.

AN EPIC 108 MILE RIDE DOWN THE NATCHEZ TRACE

Starting off at Garrison Creek (near Lepers Fork TN), we ride more than 50 miles each day for two days down the Natchez Trace with sag stops along the way. Finishing the ride at Colbert Ferry in Alabama. Later in during the annual, Helen Keller Festival in Tuscumbia Alabama, we get to ride in the Hellen Keller parade, visit the birthplace of Helen Keller at Ivy Green, play games, swim, and experience William Gibson's live production of Helen Keller “The Miracle Worker” play. We all have fun as we share the love of our savior, Jesus Christ to the blind and visually impaired (sometimes deaf).
