ACB-Ohio Tandem Bike Rally to be held September 19, 2009
Nisbet Park, Loveland, Ohio

The American Council of the Blind of Ohio, (ACB-Ohio) is hosting its third annual tandem rally-fundraiser. Visually impaired stokers and sighted captains will begin and end their routes on the trail near Loveland, but there will be several distances and routes to choose from. Sighted tandem teams and single bikes are also welcome. Explore the area on back roads or stay on the flat trail, and meet the group for a picnic lunch.

Many Ways to Participate:

1. Bring your tandem and your stoker and enjoy a beautiful ride and meet some other folks who enjoy tandem cycling.
2. 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.
3. Volunteer for transportation, registration and/or the picnic.
4. Pledge on a rider or sponsor a tandem team.
5. Donate give-aways to promote your business.

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, scholarships, emotional support, and seminars.

The proceeds from this ride will help sponsor the third annual Building Blocks for a Brighter Future, a seminar for parents of children who are visually impaired to be held October 3, 2009.
