A blind cyclist in north-east London is looking for people to partner him for training rides while he prepares for a triathlon in the summer.

Chris Blackabee lives in the borough of Havering, and has his own tandem (see photo), and is keen to find a front rider to help him to train.

Ideally, persons would be confident cyclists able to take charge of a tandem carrying two people.

LCC's Gerhard Weiss said, "LCC has a long tradition of encouraging people of all abilities to enjoy cycling, and we hope very much that Chris can find enough people to help him enjoy this liberating experience."

If you'd like to join Chris for regular or one-off rides, please get in touch with us via email.

Chris is prepared to travel, but if you are based in north-east London, that would be an advantage.
