Blind Bridgwater man ready for cycle challenge
7:00am Monday 2nd September 2013 in Bridgwater Area News
A BLIND man from Bridgwater is gearing up for a 50-mile tandem cycle ride.
Dave Ridgway is riding from Bristol to Taunton on September 15 with Julian Brandon to raise funds for Somerset Sight and Apple FM, Taunton’s community radio station.
Dave said: “I haven’t ridden a bike in years and a tandem is quite different.
“We’re training hard and are on track for a good ride.
“We travel from Bridgwater to Musgrove Park Hospital along the canal.
“Julian points out the landmarks along the way, such as the sculptures of the planets, which I find very interesting.
“We have been quite lucky with the weather, apart from the last time when we got soaked.”
