Bobby is not only out there with his guides at the races and events, he is throwing his hat into the motivational speaking arena. If you haven't seen him in action on stage, he makes it personal. He shares his less-than-normal life and makes every person in the audience feel involved in his life, on the bike, and as if they are the only person in the room. You might laugh a bit as well! Details about speaking engagements can be found on the site. Check it out HERE.
Bobby can also be found on Facebook at RideBlindRacing's fan page

Writers Note: I met Bobby a couple years ago when he came for the Hood River Super D in 2008. I stayed on the course till the very end so I could see in person- a blind man riding his mountain bike down Post Canyon. Well, he emerged with his guide yelling out every single command. Describing the rocks, what gear to be in, when his front tire would drop- Constant communication was being shouted out. I started to ring my cowbell and scream for him. He was stoked as he descended out of sight. I ran to my truck so I could see him cross the finish line and once again- ring my cowbell for Blind Bobby McMullen, a true inspiration to mountain bikers everywhere and to the fellow blind. -Mike 'northwestdhdad' Estes
The Hood River Super D is scheduled for May 28th-30th 2010 and Bobby is attending this year to race
