This is the first in a series of short items from Exsight members about why they enjoy riding tandem. First up, Sydney based member Katherine Welshaw.
I have always been a sporty person. Swimming, athletics, goalball plus various other outdoor activities in New Zealand, I’ve given it a go.
When i moved to Sydney in 2011 I felt lost not only as a vision impaired person trying to navigate a new city but also as an avid sportsperson trying to find a community i fitted into over here.
Near the end of 2011 i discovered exsight.
Exsight gave me a purpose and reason to expand my confidence both navigating a new ciry and meeting new people.
Not only have exsight given me a great sporting outlet but the people i have met are amazing.
The pilots/captains go above and beyond to make each and every ride memorable.
Not only have a partaken in various rides in both Sydney to Wollongong but ive taken part in the Sydney Spring Cycle but with the support of exsight in everyway i have even completed a triathlon.
Cycling not only gives you an energy outlet but always put a smile on faces.
