The project aims to extend the work of the Glasgow Tandem Club, by recruiting and training more volunteer pilots who will support taster sessions, training and group rides for new stokers wishing to give tandem riding a try.
Building on the knowledge and expertise of our key partners at the Glasgow Tandem Club, we want to support the growth of the network across the West by the end of the project.
We all understand that physical activity is good for our mental and physical health and wellbeing, and we want to enable everyone – whatever their age, ability or background – to cycle.
Our project challenges beliefs about who is able to cycle and empowers people to live the active and independent life they want to as included members of the local community.
In Tandem is part of an established programme of Cycling UK projects that support people to get pedalling on a cycle that meets their needs and empowers them.
If you or someone you know would like to give tandem cycling a go, or find out more information about the In Tandem project, then contact our dedicated development officer, Andrew Campbell.
The In Tandem project is looking for tandem cycle pilots in the following areas to help riders with a vision impairment enjoy cycling:
- Inverclyde & Ayrshire
- East Renfrewshire
- North and South Lanarkshire
- East and West Dumbarton
