When a Blind Man Cycles: 1,500 KM Casper Caravan
text size: A- A+
We were recently wondering what Florin is doing, so we got in touch with him. Since we’ve spoken, he hasn’t done too much, only went from Romania to the Paralympic Games in London on a tandem bike with his friend and co-driver from the aforementioned BMW, Alexandru Racanel.
Since summer is now using its full power, the two figured they should hit the road again. On July 1st, they got on a new tandem bike, convinced other people to help them form what they call the Casper caravan and started a tour of Romania.
Florin now aims to help disabled persons receive a better integration. For this, he’ll be cycling with the rest of the crew, which also includes a second visually impaired cyclist, Arnold Csaba Butu, and they won’t stop until they reach no less than 28 cities around the country.
That’s 1,500 km (930miles) of pedaling, so we wish them the best of luck and the least of rain. You can see Florin in action in the clip below.
