Starting a chapter in your local community
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. 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.

Visiting Copenhagen? Join us for a ride
In collaboration with AirBnB we will give you the awesome sensation of a cargo bike ride along with a group of other people. You just need to show up and we will bring a bunch of cool, authentic Copenhagen style cargo bikes… and as a twist: You’ll share this experience with one or more elderly residents from nearby care homes who will bring their memories and knowledge of Copenhagen to this unique experience.
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.

What’s your favourite thing about riding?
“The speed (laughter) and the fun we’ve had. Seeing the young kids, Waving at people as they walk by. But the nature part – our parks are so beautiful. It’s a pretty smooth ride.”
