BSC ADVENTURES (BSCA) is an initiative within the Blind Stokers Club (BSC) for those members exploring beyond the core cycling program.
BSCA is not so much about going higher, farther or faster – rather a challenge of the imagination, to venture away from norms of place and lifestyle, and seek diversity of experience to delight the soul.
BSC Adventures will create group travel bike touring and other opportunities for BSC members and make them affordable, through need-based grants sourced from crowdfunding donations.
Who Benefits: A few BSC Adventurers are spot-lighted here; many more members seek simmilar opportunities . . .
