Tim and Amanda Doucette from Canada refuse to give up their cycling hobby despite their disability. Being able to see is naturally a major part of the cycling experience; enjoying the scenery, avoiding dangers in the road or even stopping to take a picture.
They decided to use the cardo BK-1 communication systems to keep their dream alive. In fact, they cycle for charity,
raising awareness and funds to help people who are blind in their own initiative called “Eye Bike 4 Sight” http://www.eyebike4sight.ca
In July 2012, the couple embarked on a 7 day cycling tour around Prince Edward Island in Canada using two cardo BK-1 communication systems to raise $5000 for charity. The money was to be donated to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), an organization that is very special to Tim and Amanda.
Owing to the cardo BK-1 communication systems, Tim and Amanda were able to cycle safely along the 350km trail, helping and supporting each other via intercom conferencing, even when cycling many meters apart.
“We would not have been able to do this easily without the cardo BK-1. It was exactly what we needed. I used it to warn my wife if there is an obstacle coming up. Thank you!” Tim posted on the cardo BK-1 Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/cardoBk1
Here are some great photos from their tour together, using the cardo BK-1:
