Takes 2 To Tandem - American Council of the Blind of Ohio, (ACB-Ohio)

Date: Sunday September 21, 2008
Time: All Day
Location: Kokosing Gap Trail, Mount Vernon, Ohio
Notes: ACB-Ohio Tandem Bike Rally to be held September 21, 2008

Kokosing Gap Trail, Mount Vernon, Ohio

The American Council of the Blind of Ohio, (ACB-Ohio) is hosting its second annual tandem rally-fundraiser. Visually impaired stokers and sighted captains will have three routes to choose from, 30 flat miles on the trail and 30, and 60 mile-routes on rolling terrain, each starting and ending on the beautiful Kokosing Gap Trail. The two more challenging routes will include the gently rolling hills and some more challenging ones through the beautiful Amish countryside, while the flat route will stay on the trail, which is noted as one of the prettiest and most well maintained rails-to-trails bike paths in Ohio. Sighted tandem teams and single bikes are also welcome.

Many Ways to Participate:
Bring your tandem and your stoker and enjoy a beautiful ride and meet some other folks who enjoy tandem cycling.
Bring your tandem and meet your stoker for the day, who might be visually impaired. Many blind folks love to ride, but they need a captain and/or a bike.
Volunteer for transportation, registration and/or food stops.
Pledge on a rider or sponsor a tandem team.
Donate give-aways to promote your business.
Join the PB&J lunch preparation crew the night before.

The American Council of the Blind of Ohio is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality and equality of life for persons who are blind or visually impaired. We offer information and referral for resources for equipment, training programs, emotional support, scholarships, and more.

The proceeds from this ride will help sponsor the quarterly seminars ACB-Ohio conducts for visually impaired Ohioans and their families.
