About the West Australian Chapters

Western Australia has many idyllic regions with the perfect climate and lifestyle for creating the “right to wind in your hair.” Several committed Affiliates have come together with the vision to support and promote Cycling Without Age throughout Western Australia.

By working together, we can not only bring more trishaw bikes to the road, but also develop a strong, caring network that creates opportunities which allow the elderly to feel included in their community.

How To Book A Ride

Cycling Without Age is all about social inclusivity for those who are elderly or with disabilities. We are able to take two passengers at a time with a maximum combined weight of 150kgs – if this is not suitable, we take single passengers too! All passengers are safely secured with seatbelts and our trishaws are ridden by qualified volunteer pilots (cyclists) at a very slow speed so they can enjoy their surroundings and have a chat. We provide a lovely warm blanket in the cooler months, but suggest also bringing a jacket and beanie /scarf if they feel the cold, or a wide brimmed hat in the warmer months.

Important announcement: Suspension of CWAA owned and operated chapter rides

Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, we announce that Cycling Without Age Australia (CWAA) owned and operated trishaw passenger rides will be suspended effective immediately until further notice. 

Cycling Without Age Australia is following the situation very carefully. Our passengers, older adults or those with disabilities, are vulnerable people for whom the consequences of contracting coronavirus is potentially severe.

Chapters affected are:

  • Fremantle (WA)
  • Melville (WA)
  • Rockingham (WA)
  • Sunshine Coast (Qld)
  • York (WA)

For those chapters operating independently, CWAA recommends chapters make an informed decision early in conjunction with their local community and stakeholders, regarding the continuation of their passenger rides.

Additionally, in keeping with advice from CWA International, we recommend that chapters around Australia keep updated on and follow the guidelines and recommendations of their local, state and federal authorities. These guidelines and recommendations change on a daily basis, so before engaging in trishaw rides and activities please take a moment to keep yourself informed about the latest updates.

We trust you understand our decision, and look forward to the resumption of our services as soon as possible.

If anyone would like any further information or clarification, please contact  info@cyclingwithoutage.org.au or feel free to get in touch with any of the Affiliates on their details below.
