A month or two ago I saw a piece on the CSV website, asking for volunteers to be pilots for blind cyclists. I sat in my office chair, ignoring the work I was meant to be doing, and thought about it. This was either a fantastic idea, or a very very bad idea. After several moments I concluded it was a fantastic idea and fired off an email.

Today I got one back, thanking me for my interest and giving me details about the first information session, and the usual police/working with children checks. On the form I've got to fill out is a question, well there are many questions, but there is one in particular that I want to draw your attention to.

"What attracts you most about becoming a volunteer?"

Again, I sat for several moments in my office chair before eventually scribbling down an answer.

"Everyone should have a chance to feel freed by / on a bike."

Hopefully feeling freed doesn't require the wind on their face, as anyone riding stoker behind me wont get any breeze.
