Cycling Without Age Summit 2024

Summit is an event bringing together the Cycling Without Age community from all corners of the world.

Since the movement’s inception in 2012, Cycling Without Age has grown from a single ride to over 3,000 active chapters in 40 countries, and nearly 40,000 pilots have been welcomed and trained and have ridden over 2.5 million rides with those who cannot ride a bike on their own.

Summit 2024 will focus on bringing all the combined knowledge and experience of our global community together for 3 days in Copenhagen.

Registration is now closed. If you would like to be considered for a space, please contact us about available Summit spaces.
