Cycling Without Age is a not-for-profit charity that provides a community service by connecting elderly people and those less-abled with their community and the outdoors by giving them free rides on trishaw ebikes, piloted by volunteer cyclists.
On this website, you can learn more about how to become a part of our team in Australia, whether it be as an Affiliate organising a local Chapter, a pilot (riding the bike) or an organisation operating your own Cycling Without Age trishaw.
Cycling Without Age rides are at no cost to passengers and ridden by volunteer pilots so we need your help to operate. You can support Cycling Without Age in Australia with a tax deductible donation today!
Fundraising efforts will help buy the trishaws and cover expenses associated with their operation.
New Cycling Without Age trishaw gives Sydney seniors an uplifting ride
August 1st 2019
Cycling Without Age helps residents of all ages keep active and engaged in the community. A new trishaw has been added to the Sydney fleet thanks to a grant from the City of Sydney and Woollahra Council.
Local bike group BIKEast trains volunteer riders to use the battery-assisted trishaws.
“The program gets residents into the outdoors for contact with people who are active. We have wonderful conversations and exchange stories – it’s just wonderful for both the passengers and the pilot riders,” said Adrian Boss, Cycling Without Age coordinator from BIKEast.
Look for Cycling Without Age in “Old People’s Home For 4 Year Olds”
Cycling Without Age is a community based initiative aimed at reducing social isolation and increasing both mental and physical health for the elderly. With a growing ageing population, we all need to look outside of the box for solutions like these to keep our older-generation more engaged and connected with community.
“Old People’s Home For 4 Year Olds” is an absolutely brilliant tv documentary from the ABC. In Episode 4 Cycling Without Age give rides to these wonderful people (old and young).
What a remarkable journey. ❤️
