Help Needed! Accessible storage for Two's Company Tandems

Two's Company, our tandem riding project for young people and adults who are blind or visually impaired, has a fleet of 10 tandems and we are always on the lookout for a free, dry and secure location in central Bristol where they can live!

The space would need to be accessible on Saturdays and Sundays, and occasional evenings, ideally near to the city centre, Create Centre or near the Bristol and Bath Cycle Path.

Generous Tandem Donation in Memory of Adrian Hill

Life Cycle's 'Two's Company' project has received a very kind donation of a tandem bicycle, in memory of Adrian Hill, who sadly passed away last year.

Adrian used to work for Life Cycle as a mechanic and was a keen cyclist and lover of all things bicycle, and those close to him were keen for one of his beautifully kept bikes to help support our tandem rides for young people and adults who are blind and visually impaired.

Lands End - John O Groats "With my eyes shut!"

Lands End to John O Groats "With My Eyes Shut"

Huge congratulations to regular "Two's Company" back-rider Steve Ewens, who has successfully completed a gruelling Lands End to John O Groats ride on a tandem piloted by his brother - raising almost £4,000 for Life Cycle along the way!

Steve is one of the many blind or visually-impaired people who come out cycling on the back of a tandem with Life Cycle UK's pioneering Two's Company project. The project enlists the help of sighted volunteers to offer a regular programme of healthy, sociable group tandem rides to those who are unable to ride a bike independently.
