Help wanted...

Hello Richard

I have been approached by one of our Blind Veterans who is a keen cyclist.  He is going to be losing his “pilot” who rides in the front position of his tandem which will mean he can no longer enjoy cycling.  He is a very fit man who has completed the Great North Run this year and has signed up to do our gruelling centenary 100k in 24 hours walk next year. 

He is desperate to be able to do weekly 20 mile+ rides in and around Hartlepool.  Would it be possible to advertise for volunteers through your cycling club?  I have posters or could write a short advert.

If you would like to see what Blind Veterans UK is all about our website is

So, if anyone thinks they can help let me know and I will put you in touch...
