Bury Tandem Club for Blind and Partially Sighted People
We are a friendly club and charity of about 30 people who enjoy cycling. All of our rear riders, called stokers, have a visual impairment and range from very experienced club cyclists who have lost their sight to younger people who have discovered the joys of cycling through the club.
Peter Jackson Memorial Ride
Every year the club raises much needed funds through a sponsored ride of 80 miles, in memory of pilot Peter Jackson. Please help us.
There are different ways to get involved with the club. We are always keen to hear from new riders. If you think you can help, contact us.
Visit our fundraising page if you would like to support us through donations, sponsorship or fundraising.
A big thank you
James Whitham, John Bunting, Rotary Club of Tottington and Bury West, everyone who rode the Southport ride and everyone who sponsored them, Spirit of Dixie Country and Western club and The Drop Off Cafe, Edenfield, all of whom have raised funds for Bury Tandem Club.
Based in Bury, Greater Manchester, our Sunday rides take us across Lancashire, the West Pennine Moors, Cheshire and West Yorkshire. We average about 13mph and rides are between 40 and 60 miles with a lunch-stop in the middle. We ride every Sunday unless the weather is very bad.
Riding a tandem is a great way to experience the beautiful countryside around Manchester, while keeping fit. Pilot and stoker work together and getting into a good cycling rhythm makes riding a joy.
