Starting a chapter in your local community
If you would like to start a chapter of Cycling Without Age in your city, we would be delighted to help you get started.
Getting started with a Cycling Without Age chapter is an amazing experience. Nothing beats witnessing the joy of the elderly, pilots and personnel interact on and around the trishaw and seeing the smiles of passengers coming back from their first ride with wind in their hair, rosy cheeks and full of stories. We love to experience the movement of Cycling Without Age spreading all over the world and always welcome more to join.
We have launched a simple Affiliate model for communities, nursing homes, cities and individuals worldwide to become part of the movement. Proceed to the Affiliate page or if you have any questions, write us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We already have a wealth of experience in working with nursing home staff and management, city councils, other volunteer organizations, cyclists federations as well as great ideas of how to get the initiative off the ground and locals excited about it.
The Grey Escape
Lean back and enjoy The Grey Escape, a half hour documentary about a life-changing 4-day journey in which twenty elderly people deliver trishaws from Denmark to Norway. Use it professionally, use it at your fundraisers, watch it with future passengers, rock up your community – or just watch it for your own pleasure.
