Cycling Without Age

CYCLING WITHOUT AGE – WEST DEVON AND EAST CORNWALL                        

Volunteer pilots take local elders and care/nursing homes residents out on ‘trishaw’ cycle rides to feel the wind in their hair. Bringing generations closer together using special trishaws (three-wheel cycles with a passenger cab out front). They have electrical power assist, so no need to be super-sporty to be a volunteer cycle pilot. Rides are comfortable, fun and free. They enable people to experience the city and nature close-up from the bicycle. There’s opportunity to regain social connection and for people to tell their story in the environment where they have lived their lives. The work builds bridges between generations and reinforces trust, respect and the social glue of our society. Our cycle pilots and passengers alike enjoy the physical and emotional well-being benefits. The joy of riding in the trishaw cab stimulates spirits to fly and stories to flow!

Please get in touch so that we can let you know when we are holding the next free rides or to register your interest in being a pilot.  Email lynn.roddy@homeinstead.co.uk.  You can also message us on Facebook.
