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.

2014 - Let's go Glasgow

Inspired by the Commonwealth Games, this year we are planning a sponsored ride to Glasgow.

Sunday rides

Based in Bury, Greater Manchester, our Sunday rides take us across Lancashire, the West Pennine Moors, Cheshire and West Yorkshire. We average abotu 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.
