    Hi Everyone

    My name is Steve. I'm from Saltash in Cornwall. I've always cycled from an early age. I really got into it more as a teenager and young adult.

    I've not ridden a bicycle since 2003 as I lost a sufficient amount of sight. I've always had dodge eye sight but this time it meant I no longer had enough sight to ride solo.

    This year I decided that I wanted to get back into cycling and I bought a Tandem. A Dawes Galaxy Twin built in about 1994. Unfortunately, I'm still looking for someone to ride with me as the front rider (Captain) with me as the Stoker. I've ridden a tandem a long time ago from Cornwall to the Isle of Man for a charity event with the Cornwall Young Farmer back in the mid 80's. A very long time ago.

    I'm looking forward to chatting with you all.
