Cycling Without Age is a program that was started in 2012 in Copenhagen by Ole Kassow, who wanted to help elders get back on bicycles, but he had to find a solution to their limited mobility. The answer was a trishaw and he started offering free bike rides to the local nursing home residents.
It is now represented in 50 countries, with 2,200 chapters, and has 3000 trishaws in operation.
Access Alliance has teamed up with the Cycling Without Age: Toronto Chapter to bring this innovative program to Scarborough Cycles as a pilot program. This past summer we started offering rides with our elder clients at our Community Health Centre.
