Tandem Biking

Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) will be holding a tandem bike ride for individuals who are blind and visually impaired. We are looking for a few volunteers to captain the tandem bikes for our athletes. Volunteers do not need to have a background in tandem biking, but should be able to ride a bike. Training will be held before the bike ride. We encourage anyone with an interest in biking, sports, and helping others to come and join us on this wonderful ride!
