Welcome to the home page of Bury Tandem Club for the Visually Impaired. We are a small group of tandeming enthusiasts who all live in or near Bury which is a few miles from Manchester in north west England. The club comprises both sighted front tandem riders and visually impaired rear riders and consists in all of some thirty regular cyclists.

2014 - Let's go Glasgow

Two years ago the club undertook its biggest ever challenge - we rode from our local velodrome in Manchester, to the Olympic velodrome in London non-stop. This year, to celebrate the Commonwealth Games, we're heading for Glasgow, setting off on the 18 July and arriving on the 19 July - a distance of around 230 miles. We will be publishing more details later in the year, but if you would like to help in anyway (support, donations of energy bars/gels/drinks, or fundraising) please do get in touch by emailing benmcolman@gmail.com.


Become a Front Rider

Bury Tandem Club is continually on the look-out for new front riders. This will help ensure that our blind and visually impaired rear riders have a chance to participate in their favourite sport every week. Maybe you are an experienced solo cyclist and can help us by becoming a front rider, or maybe you are a blind or visually impaired person who would like to join us as a rear rider.
