Why a bike for visually impaired cycling?
In almost any type of activity, the blind, and visually impaired often rely on the assistance of others. This is no different in bicycling for and with the blind. It takes a good, sighted pilot to clearly give direction - then even a spread out bike ride for the blind is no longer a problem.
Because cycling is a lot of fun for many blind and visually impaired people and helps with the following points:
- To get from A to B
- As a vacation and leisure activity
- As a sports activity
- To run daily errands
- Strengthens social contacts
