Cycling Without Age.

Launching a chapter and crowdfunding a trishaw.

Cycling Without Age is a nationwide initiative that offers free bike rides to local nursing home residents on a specially designed trishaw, tackling loneliness and isolation which occurs too often when senior citizens become confined to their own homes.

Ole Kassow launched the endeavour in 2012 with his uniquely designed trishaw, enabling volunteers to visit local care and senior citizen facilities around the community to offer residents an opportunity to be a passenger. Since launching, communities all over the UK have been inspired to rally together and fund more trishaws so that they can offer local elderly residents the freedom to get outdoors and explore the world around them. 

Seven Cycling Without Age chapters are now live and crowdfunding to raise the £7,000 needed to purchase their first trishaw! Three prizes of £1000, £500 and £250 are up for grabs for the three projects that manage to generate the highest number of supporters throughout their crowdfunding campaign. Don't forget to keep an eye on the scoreboard to see how they're getting on!
