Because of my interest in cycling, I’m involved in many different organizations. For example, there is a statewide group, the California Bicycle Coalition. I’m also involved in the county group, the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition. In addition to that, I’ve been a member of the Blind Stokers Club for over three and a half years, and the concept of the club is it pairs a sighted captain with a blind or visually impaired stoker. The word stoker comes from the meaning of power. In the old days where someone would throw coal into a locomotive, for example, to make the trains run.
The Blind Stokers Club has a sighted captain, a blind stoker on the back and a tandem bicycle. Occasionally people will say, well, gosh, how do you do that? How do you ride with a blind person? We’re riding on the same bike, and I became very good friends with my cycling partner, John. We’ve cycled thousands of miles together and we ride together as a club about once a month. My partner and I ride together about once a week.
Then once a year we have the large fundraiser where we also contribute money to the San Diego Center for the Blind and that is a 200-mile ride over a three-day period.
