Description:

Ride a bicycle?


 

Speak Korean at a basic, conversational level?


 

On Saturday April 20th, we need 4 volunteers to ride tandem (2-person) bicycles with visually impaired partners from Siloam Center.


 

We’ll meet at 9:15am, at exit 2 of Ttukseom Resort Station, Line 7. We’ll be assigned partners and tandem bicycles. We'll ride along the Han River at a comfortable pace for about 9 or 10 km out and then return to the starting point, for a total of about 20 km, taking about 1.5 to 2 hours and including a few breaks along the way.


 

Next, we’ll have lunch together at a restaurant near the station, paid for by Siloam Center. Finally, we’ll return to the subway station by around 1 pm. The participants have varying degrees of visual impairment. If necessary, please assist your partner until reaching the subway station after lunch

Wear comfortable gym clothing & sneakers


 

You should be reasonably skilled at bike riding so that the visually impaired partner seated on the back can ride safely with you.
