Be Part Of Something Great

Cycling Without Age

What Is Cycling Without Age?

Getting older should not mean giving up the things you enjoy–unfortunately, that is exactly what many seniors do. They stop partaking in activities because they no longer have the energy or strength to participate. However, with a helping hand (or two), seniors can still enjoy their hobbies. This is why Cycling Without Age was created.

Ole Kassow, from Denmark, originated the idea in 2012. He wanted to help seniors get back on their bikes, but needed a solution for their limited mobility–so he purchased a trishaw and started offering free rides to local nursing home residents. Eventually, he brought the idea to Dorthe Pedersen, a civil society consultant for Copenhagen.

Dorthe was intrigued by the idea, and together, they purchased five trishaws and officially launched Cycling Without Age. Since then, the movement has spread across Denmark and to 50 countries around the world.

Become A Pilot

Being a trishaw pilot is a great way to get some free exercise, log volunteer hours, meet new people, or experience new destinations–all while helping others!
Anyone who can ride a bike can volunteer to be a trishaw pilot. Each trishaw has an optional electric-assist feature that uses power as you pedal. We provide full training on using electric-assist, turning, breaking, switching gears, and everything else you need to know about using a trishaw. You must complete 4-6 hours of one-on-one training before becoming a pilot.

Trips are based on your availability, so whenever you have time, simply go online to schedule a trip. You and your passengers can also choose the destination.**

**We are currently working on funding for trishaws, so online scheduling is not yet available. If you would like to donate, click here to visit our donation page.
