We are a voluntary community group based in Trafford, England who are part of the global initiative Cycling Without Age. Founded in Copenhagen in 2012, Cycling Without Age brings generations closer together by sharing experiences by bike and is now in over 1000 Care Homes in 30 countries worldwide. The specially designed Trishaws allows local volunteers to visit local care and senior citizen facilities around the community and offer residents an opportunity to be a passenger on the Trishaw.
I first heard about Cycling Without Age while watching Pride of Britain Awards, this galvanised me to pair my love of volunteering and cycling. Since November 2017, I have worked with another affiliated member, Kate Elliott, to recruit volunteer colleagues to help us spread the word. We are raising funds to buy a tri-shaw which will be used to take elderly local residents and other isolated people out in our local community.
