Hi, I reside in S. CA. I have been a cyclist for 10 years, and enjoy it immensely since I'm an outdoors girl. I own a Cannondale beautiful blue, with disk breaks, have new for two years, and ride awesome. I am visually impaired and in great shape and ready to ride more often. If you are interested and don't have experience I will teach you, fine if you do have experience. You will enjoy the experience whether you've been on a tandem or not. Come on and try this new experience.
