Tandem Cycling

Would you like to try tandem cycling? We can arrange a tandem taster session for you with a trained pilot.  

Tandem cycling is a great opportunity to take part in an enjoyable and healthy exercise, getting out and about in the City and countryside. Our members and volunteers organise regular rides out and a group enters the London to Cambridge bike ride every year.

We have four tandems stored at the Outspoken Cycle premises very close to Cam Sight’s Cambridge office and three stored at the George Campbell Leisure Centre, March. All the bikes are maintained and regularly serviced. 

To find out more or book a taster session in Cambridge please contact Nick via nick@camsight.org.uk or 01223 420033 ext. 29.

To find out more or book a taster session in Fenland please contact Sam via [email protected] or 07498 505687 

                                                                                                                                                                       

After visiting Cam Sight's Centre in Wisbech, Nicky booked herself onto a tandem cycling taster session. She's now in training for the London to Cambridge bike ride with volunteer pilot Andy and loving every minute. 

“I used to enjoy cycling and so I decided to give tandem cycling a go.  I was paired with Andy, who I’d never met before and I had to trust him totally.  He talked to me all of the time, giving me clear instructions and explaining what we were passing.  This was the scariest thing that I have ever done but I decided to have another ride and see how I got on.

The second time out I was responsible for hand signals as well!  After covering 10 miles I was buzzing with happiness. Tandem cycling has given me the chance to mix with a group people who have been friendly and welcoming but the most important thing is that I feel that I have been treated as a normal person, not a disabled person.”
