Up Coming Tandem Cycling 21 March Cancelled

We regret to inform you that this event has been cancelled with immediate effect; until further notice. This is due to the current health situation.

In line with recent government guidance around non-essential contact and unnecessary travel, in order to minimise the spread of Covid-19, it is with regret that the MSSC committee has taken the reluctant decision to suspend all MSSC events and activities until further notice.

Tandem Cycling with MSSC until end of March 2020

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.

The rides are short and long to various destinations, and always include a stop at a café or a pub.  Whether it be along quiet country lanes or following the Wandle trail, the atmosphere is convivial and enjoyed by all.  It’s a great way to have fun and keep fit.  New members are always welcome, regardless of ability or experience.

MSSC  runs regular ‘Have a Go” workshops for anyone who is keen to learn how to ride a tandem, either as a back rider (stoker) or a front rider (pilot).   Stokers can try riding a tandem with an experienced cyclist and practise their pedalling technique, while pilots can learn the basics of handling a tandem and how to interact and communicate with visually impaired stokers.
