Adaptive Bike clinic - Volunteers needed

I am specifically looking for someone with a tandem. I have a gentleman who is vision impaired who really is interested in biking again and is looking forward to riding a tandem with someone. I have a Bike Friday tandem but if someone has a nice bike and feels comfortble riding with this gentleman it would be greatly appreciated in many ways. I'll also need some volunteers to just ride along with participants as they ride along the Amazon bike path. They don't need to know about disabilities, I'll give them a brief training and I'll be doing the adaptations if needed for folks. This is a great opportunity to get some new folks out and introduced to riding.
Thanks, Patty
