The Right To Wind In Your Hair

We are all heading on the same path that our grandparents were on. It is an inevitable journey of life. Cycling Without Age reminds us of that relationship with our elders and on our five guiding principles that we abide by.

It starts with the simple act of generosity. Give our time to them when they gave us their care and time. There are a lot of stories to be shared through storytelling from our elders, but also from us. They want to listen to us too and through this bridge we form relationships. We take our time, and the act of cycling slowly helps us take in the experience and appreciate it. Without age is the principle of how life does not end at a given age, but instead we can embrace what each generation has to offer through something as simple as cycling.

Our crowdfunding campaign has ended

Elderly citizens all over the world have the right to wind in their hair. In June 2015 we raised nearly 60,000 USD to ship bicycle rickshaws and know-how to passionate people around the world, who are working hard to start Cycling Without Age in their community. Thanks to everybody for making contributions and for spreading the word. From July onwards we will be shipping bicycles to all corners of the world. Follow their journeys here and on our social media.

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.

We have launched a simple, royalty-free license model for communities worldwide to become part of the movement. Proceed to the license page or if you have any questions, write us an email at start@cyclingwithoutage.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.
