Coming To A Cycle Path Near You!!
Cycling Without Age (visit the site and view the video) is an international program in 38 countries for mobility challenged people to help them enjoy the fresh air and scenery of their surroundings from the front of a trishaw.
The closest operating chapter to us is in Victoria and one in Vancouver is starting this Spring. The North Shore Chapter is hard on their heels with a vibrant group headed by Ian Rose-Innes, an active member of the West Vancouver Seniors’ Activity Centre and the associated cycling community. The Chapter will serve all residents of North and West Vancouver, free of charge, and be owned and operated by Silver Harbour Seniors’ Activity Centre Society, with support from the West Vancouver Seniors’ Activity Centre.
Please Help Us To Fundraise – We need to buy two trishaws!
Built in Denmark and periodically imported to North America, it takes several months to get a trishaw. We are targeting an initial purchase of two trishaws by the spring of 2020 and we have launched our fundraising campaign to make this happen.
We are inviting donors to purchase components of the trishaw from the list below.
Here is the link to our Donation Page:
If you think that you, a family member or friend or someone who would benefit would like to take a ride in one of the seats on a trishaw, donate a component, make it happen and be part of a legacy! Buy your component today!
The North Shore Chapter of Cycling Without Age was initiated by retired engineer Ian Rose-Innes. A good friend had been diagnosed with a brain tumor and after surgery, radiation and chemo he was rather degraded. Ian wanted to take him for bike ride along the False Creek sea wall and for a cup of coffee at Olympic Village, but not one of the bike shops he tried in Vancouver had equipment that he could use to transport his friend. So when he encountered Cycling Without Age, which provides rides for those with mobility challenges on a trishaw, it really struck a chord. He started to work on the creating a North Shore Chapter which is now a reality.
