The live broadcast was not the only thing that RX Radio Reporters were excited about on Saturday the 29th of February, The South African Tandem Association also stopped by and offered an opportunity that these reporters definitely did not want to miss out on.
The South African Tandem Association’s aim is to provide individuals who are blind and partially sighted with the opportunity to enjoy cycling and they had reached out to RX Radio to offer to take some of the reporters around the premises on tandem bicycles. RX Radio Reporter Muji also had the opportunity to interview one of the members, Cindy Jacobs, who was actually interviewed before back in 2018,on Tackling the Outdoors.. For many of the reporters, it was their first time on a tandem bicycle (let alone an ordinary bicycle) but the Tandem Association was more than willing to help and made it a fun day for everyone. But it didn’t just stop there, the RX Radio Reporters were given watermelon and hotdogs for the afternoon! “It’s amazing to see the happiness and joy on the kids’ faces” said Cindy, reflecting on the day. It is safe to say that the reporters are going to be talking about this for quite some time.
