i borrowed a dursley based tandem a couple of months ago. i had always enjoyed cycling but once sight loss hit i no longer thought this was possible. i recieved a letter in the post where one of the sections talked about charlotte's tandems and i really wanted a go on one. i emailed alex and within two weeks i had a tandem in my possession. it was a great way of getting even fitter and a fun way to get out and about with friends. i loved riding the tandem so much that for my birthday my parents brought me a tandem of my own. since then i have been on many rides and they have been ever increasing in distance. i can not thank charlotte's tandems enough!
