Cycling Independent training at Sport Compass House

Today Javier Silva and Fausto Esparza from Mexico did a training session at the Sport Compass House complex next to ExCel! Javier Silva and Fausto Esparza are the creators of a new type of cycling, Cycling Independent. This new sport is designed for people with visual disabilities. To make it more clear what it is: Blind cyclists use a tandem (which has two seats), in which a cyclist who can see sits as a guide and the visually impaired person is in the back seat as a second pedal. In this case, Javier, who is blind, uses a traditional bicycle and is guided by Fausto through a radio and an auditory device.
