Tandem Cycling with the Merton Sports and Social Club (MSSC)

Merton Sports and Social Club for Visually Impaired People (MSSC) has been organising tandem cycle rides for over thirty years from its base in Colliers Wood.  The club has a fleet of tandem bicycles and pairs up sighted front riders with visually impaired back riders for regular outings.

Our regular rides open to all members will begin on Saturday 22 May 2021, then on the first and third Saturday morning of each month after that, unless the government guidelines change.

To register interest in a ride well in advance, please email cycling@mssc.org.uk

MSSC are keen to see as many people as possible experiencing the joy of tandem cycling and all its physical, mental and social benefits. So, they would like to know, Covid notwithstanding, if you have ever fancied having a go at tandem cycling with MSSC, but have never actually booked up for one of their rides, what is stopping you?

Is it lack of experience, lack of fitness, lack of confidence, transport issues or perhaps the timings of rides?

Whatever it is, please let MSSC know, and they can see what they can do to address your concerns.  Email them at cycling@mssc.org.uk.
