Joy Rides - a breath of fresh air

by Lissa McIntyre in Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

We did it
On 19th June 2019 we successfully raised £3,150 with 48 supporters in 28 days

My aim is to bring joy to residents in care homes and sheltered housing, and to individuals living in or visiting Edinburgh.

Hi Lissa! Good luck with your venture! I'm "paying it forward", as this is a great idea and I'm hoping should I be unable to ride on my own someday (rowingbike.com is my passion), that a service like this will be available to me. I know this will be a success because I have it on good authority of a mutual friend, Anne Polwart, that you are a wonderful person! :) Happy pedaling! Ed

Supporting you every step of the way! Can’t wait to have a new memory made with a special family member who grew up in the area but doesn’t get out much independently. We can chat and she can reminisce in comfort. Such a great idea - well done 👍

What a wonderful way to help those who are often overlooked. Getting out and about helps so much with wellbeing. Good luck with the venture.
