The concept could not be more simple. We provide specially built and equipped trishaw bicycles and work with volunteers to take people within our communities out on bicycle rides. We do this because we believe that everyone has the right to the wind in their hair, whatever their age or ability.
It could be a ride to the river to feed the ducks, watch the world go by, or to enjoy the hustle and bustle of a ride into the local town. Social isolation is a rising concern, so we hope, with the help of our specially adapted trishaws and a group of dedicated volunteers, to make a real difference to the lives of people who are alone, or lonely, and not able to get out on their own.
Help us Reach Help More Local People
We’re fundraising get our first 3 bikes to bring more smiles and reduce social isolation in Oxfordshire
We have our first two trishaws and we think they are amazing, and we have had some lovely experiences with them! Over the years we know that they can become a lifeline to so many people in Oxfordshire who may be at risk of social isolation. Having 3 bikes by the end of 2022 will help us reach so many more local people.
“Freedom!”, an elderly lady cries out loud, as we’re all sitting in a circle at the local nursing home. We’re sharing memories of cycling and what cycling means to each of us. Everyone nods and we all agree that cycling is about freedom, joy and adventure, which can be hard to come by if you’re in a nursing home.
If you have strong legs and feel like giving a bicycle ride through the city, to the forest, the waterfront or even down memory lane – then become a pilot with Cycling Without Age. Here, you can make a difference in a rewarding community while meeting new people and even getting some free exercise.
