North Shore

Coming To A Cycle Path Near You!!

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.

Cycling Without Age North Shore is offering free rides to mobility challenged people of all ages, commencing in the Spring of 2022, as shown in the photo taken near Ambleside Pier. For more details about our program in 2022 see our Information Sheet here. Thanks to the support of very generous donors, we have acquired three trishaws and a cargo trailer to serve as a mobile base. These will allow us to offer a full program of rides on the Spirit Trail, Green Necklace, Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (LSCR) Trail and the other routes. Our routes and pickup points are shown on the map. Click here to view the map.

About Us

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 this eventually resulted in him requiring a wheelchair to get around. 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 creating a North Shore Chapter and after securing key partners, such as Silver Harbour Seniors Activity Centre, it is now a reality!
