Tandem Cycling – Pilot Rider Needed
Would you like to go for a tandem bike ride once a week?

We have a gentleman who lives in the Hawthorn area and is a keen cyclist. He is looking for someone who enjoys cycling as much as he does and would like to join him as a front rider on his tandem bike once a week. It would be preferable for the person to have experience on a tandem bike.

If this sounds like something that may be of interest to you, please contact Susan at the BSRV office on 9822 8876 or email
