Blind Bike Trials Rider

 
 
I became blind due to diabetes at the age of 24.  I have been riding bikes for most of my life and when I had lost my vision I thought that I would never be able to ride again.
I couldn’t ride for 2 years between 2004 to 2006. 


One day I decided to grab my trials bike and go out to the curb to just hop around and do the most basic moves.  I quickly realized that I couldn’t even trackstand.  I put my bike away in disappointment.  A few days later I decided to learn how to trackstand again without vision.  After a long uphill battle I have gotten back to or near the level of riding  that I used to be at.


Now I ride almost everything that I could have ridden with sight but I just had to figure o
out how to do it in my own way.  There was no one to tell me how to go about it; I needed to figure it out on my own.

Vision is more than Sight.
