A Flying Takeoff Package

Getting started with a Cycling Without Age chapter is an amazing experience. Nothing beats witnessing the joy of elderly, pilots and nursing home staff 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.

A great way to get a flying takeoff is to invite and involve one or two experienced instructors from Cycling Without Age in Copenhagen. We will work with you to plan and execute your takeoff, help you identify relevant stakeholders from civil society and inspire them with workshops, talks and bike rides.

Each takeoff is based on best practice gathered from over 200 takeoff events worldwide, but tailored to each individual chapter’s needs. Our aim is to help you get the best possible start to your program, to tap into the wealth of experience and to facilitate for your chapter to come up with your unique innovations, which can be shared with our global community.

The cost of a takeoff event is 5,000 USD for a 2-day event + travel and accommodation.

Please note that these prices do not include trishaws.
