Cycling Without Age is a volunteer organization that makes seniors feel welcome again in the communities where they might otherwise think they have been forgotten. The simple act of taking them for a bike reconnects them with nature, their community and the world around them.

Many elderly often experience a loss of mobility and independence. This leads to social isolation, loneliness, and depression. Time spent with the volunteers on the Trishaw breaks them free from their social isolation. The program gives them wind in their hair, the ability to connect with nature, and the chance to share their stories.
Local volunteers called ‘pilots’ visit homes, care and senior centers / facilities around the community and offer rides on the Trishaw. Being out in nature and with the ‘pilots’, nurtures emotional well- being. Nature rides make passengers smile, bring back their memories, and allow them to be part of society again and thereby renew their appetite for life itself. We believe life can and should be beautiful at any age – even at 100!
