The right to wind in their hair

Cycling Without Age (visit the site and view the video) is an international program in 50+ countries for mobility challenged people, mostly seniors. We aim to help them enjoy the fresh air and scenery of their surroundings from the front of a trishaw while travelling along multi-use trails and low traffic roads. We break our passengers free from social isolation and make them smile. Bring back their memories and let them be part of society again, thereby renewing their appetite for life itself. It is not only about the passengers but also about giving the pilots, the volunteers, the opportunity to join a team of like-minded people working together to improve the lives of others.

Fund Raising Drive
The report on our activities in 2023 can viewed by clicking here. In the 2023 season we expanded our activities by taking 586 (460 in 2022) mobility challenged people for rides on our three trishaws. We operated from 4 bases. This resulted in the need to transfer a trishaw frequently between bases. To facilitate our service in 2024, which we intend to expand again, we need to purchase a fourth trishaw at a cost of $15,000. We are therefore commencing a fund-raising campaign. Pilots are our most precious resource and having an additional trishaw will reduce the time wasted by them in transferring a trishaw between bases and allow us to better serve our mobility challenged passengers. We are appealing to you to purchase a component of a trishaw as listed below. Donations will be tax deductible and we will acknowledge your donation by adding your name to our lists of donors on this website. Click here to donate.

Volunteers Needed
Volunteer Pilots for the 2024 season are welcome to apply now. We are also looking for volunteers to join our organizing committee.
