4th place in the Cycling Without Age

This idea seems simple.   We know that's why we need your help and support. Let's make this happen.

Have you visited Care homes or Day Centres recently?

Well it's time to give something back to the Community. We want to provide something different for people stuck behind 4 walls that may not go out regularly in to the fresh air to enjoy the surrounding. 

'Cycling without Age was founded in Copenhagen in 2012, to bring generations closer together by sharing experiences by bicycle (a very special Trishaw, a three-wheel cycle that has a passenger cab out front).  These are comfortable, fun, fully insured and rides are always FREE.  Volunteer cycle-pilots visit local care homes taking residents out on rides to feel the wind in their hair!

This  is something New that Handsworth. Theses rides can build bridges with family members and help to gain new friendships.  Helps them to to become involved in the social  connection of the Community. Sometimes enjoying the physical and emotional side of life of the great outdoors. Meeting new people on there travels. 

We live in a time were people are getting older and need to be cared for. We believe this is a opportunity of a lifetime so many Care Homes and Day centres could really benefit.

We need your donations to make this Happen 

There are lots of elderly residents who'd love this opportunity of a lifetime . Each Trishaw costs £6000 to buy and import.  Please donate to bring the joy of riding to more care home residents across Handsworth, Birmingham. We know that with your help we can help transform the lives of the Handsworth elderly  residents.

The Trishaw

As you already know each Trishaw costs around £6000 each. This includes the blanket and rain hood. Each has a motor so that the "Pilot" does not have to be super fit! In fact it is preferred that the bikes are ridden slowly to enable maximum interaction with the rider and the pilot as well as the general public along the the route.

How can we make this happen?

This project is entirely (literally and subjectively) driven by the volunteers who donate their time to Cycling Without Age.   In order for them to be able to do this, we need to have a  which is the absolute fundamental principle behind the project.

We cycle slowly, we share our stories and we build relationships across generations. Bringing all this together helps to make society as a whole better and more resilient.
