InTandem was founded by Artie Elefant who lost most of his vision due to retinitis pigmentosa at the age of 47. His vision loss forced him into early retirement and motivated Artie and his wife to move to New York City. Adapting to a new lifestyle was necessary, but Artie was not prepared to give up on biking and running. Artie joined Achilles International where he eventually started the Achilles Tandem Program.
When the Achilles program came to an end, Artie was determined to fill the void for a disabled community eagerly waiting to get out and ride again. As a result, in 2013, InTandem was born!
InTandem is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide tandem cycling programs to people who are blind, have low vision, or cannot ride independently due to other disabilities.
A portion of every InTandem cap purchased will be donated to the InTandem organization, so please help support their cause. Thank you!
