"Mountain Biking with the Blind" is an event to raise funds for World Access for the Blind's mobility and sports programs for blind youth.

Do you think it's amazing that blind people can mountain bike? World Access for the Blind has a No Limits Philosophy and believes that the blind are capable of anything - even mountain biking! They are celebrating our 10th Anniversary with a very special event at Irvine Regional Park on November 6, 2010. Mountain Biking with the Blind, sponsored by 97.1 AMP Radio, Chumba Racing, and Purefit Nutrition Bars, is a unique and exciting experience that will give the public an opportunity to ride with the blind and be inspired!

We are riding in this event to help raise awareness and raise funds. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support their mobility and sports programs for blind youth.

World Access for the Blind is a Non-Profit organization whose mission is to facilitate the self-directed achievement of blind people. They are a team of dedicated staff who lead by example - as they are blind themselves! They travel the world teaching FlashSonar (echolocation), mobility, and life skills to other blind youth and adults. World Access for the Blind is known for their No Limits attitude, as they do not settle for the minimum requirements of functioning, but instead reach for the limits beyond their limits. Their work has been featured on ABC, BBC, Discovery Channel, and many other international publications. In addition, their group of completely-blind mountain bikers has been featured in MOUNTAIN BIKE ACTION and Psychology Today.
