I need a tandem guide in LA, CA.

It is so frustrating searching for a tandem guide. I have a post here on bikeforum on So, Cal forum my response has been of people who don't take me serious and don't believe I am who I say I am! I'm in LA, CA and the response I get are from those who are far from the LA area. I have an awesome cannondale 3 yrs old. with excellent disk brakes and other excellent features. I have said I am a woman and my friend who is also on this bikeforum said no body believes me and think my post is a hokes, however, I have a phto and made my post serious of who I am and seak a tandem guide. I realize most ppeople are skeptical of guiding a tandem, because of the responsibility for the stoker. along with my photo of me standing next to my tandem and word vixen hasn't been clear to those reading the post that I am serious and I am what I say. The problem could be just what I said about skeptical of guiding a tandem. Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can find a tandem guide?

How serious of a rider are you???? Are you interested in racing? Have you done long distances before? Are you willing to ride someone else's tandem? How close are you to Castaic/Valencia?

ps I think what you are looking for is a captain, not a guide.

Have checked with the local bicycle clubs or through your local bike shops?
Maybe you could post a flyer "Looking for a captain to captain my tandem".

In a post elsewhere you state that you are visually impaired. A VI stoker seeking a captain is something that tandem cycling subforum understands a lot better than the So Cal subforum.
