Excited cyclists take off from Santa Barbara’s Braille Institute on the Cycling   Yolanda Blue, and Bruce Davis.
for Sight ride.

On August 1st, a group of 50 cyclists took off from Santa Barbara
for a three day ride to San Diego. Nothing too unusual except that
11 tandem bikes were included, consisting of a sighted “captain”
and a blind or vision-impared “stoker.” The ride was the fourth an-
nual, 200-mile Cycling for Sight event.
   The purpose of the ride was to raise awareness about blindness
and retinal diseases, and help fund the Braille Institute’s Youth
and Career Services program.
   Michael Lazarovits, director of the Santa Barbara Braille Insti-
tute, commented that San Diego has a strong cycling program, and
most of the Cycling for Sight riders came from there. He would
love to offer local young people a similar opportunity; however
they currently have no tandem bikes nor volunteer captains.
   This fall, Lazarovits would like to put together a program that
would entail training from next January to August for the fifth
annual Cycling for Sight. If you have a bike you wish to donate,
or want to help youngsters enjoy bicyling, contact Lazarovits at
682-6222 or at The ride website is

       Duvendeck represents us in
            Olympic cycling
                               Our Santa Barbara cyclist Adam
                               Duvendeck teamed up with two
                               other Americans to compete in the
                               Men’s Team Sprint in the Olympic
                               velodrome track. While Great Britain,
                               France and Germany sprinted away
                               with the medals, Team USA came in
                               eighth out of 13 teams, a step up for
                               Duvendeck over an 11th place at the
                               Athens Olympics.
   There were 24 cyclists in Team USA, and the only ones to bring
home medals were three BMX racers: Jill Kintner, Mike Day, and
Donny Robinson. It was the first Olympic appearance for BMX rac-
ing, and it will certainly make the sport more appealing to those
using our local Santa Maria and Santa Barbara tracks.
