MISSION STATEMENT & GUIDING PRINCIPLES
The Mission of Cycling Without Age Weymouth is: “to realise the dream of our elderly, and people with reduced mobility and those in isolation to give them an opportunity to remain an active part of the local community in Weymouth, Portland, Bridport & Dorchester, to give them “Right to the wind in their hair” Studies have proved that these rides improve mental health and wellbeing of the participants. Cycling Without Age Weymouth cares deeply about everyone with whom we are associated – our passengers, volunteers, supporters, and our team. That care is encapsulated in our five guiding principles:
Generosity permeates every single activity in Cycling Without Age Weymouth and works its magic at many different levels.
Slowness in a ride enables you to sense the environment and be present in the moment; it allows people you meet along the way to be curious about Cycling Without Age Weymouth.
We share stories, are privileged to listen to the stories of our passengers – and then document these (with permission), sharing them by word of mouth or on social media with the worldwide community of Cycling Without Age.
We create a multitude of new relationships across all borders in our society.
Age presents no boundaries in Cycling Without Age Weymouth; we engage with all age groups and enable people to age in a positive context – fully aware of the opportunities that lie ahead.
About the Weymouth Chapter
Cycling Without Age Weymouth was launched in September 2019 and began when our first Trishaw arrived courtesy of Weymouth Golf Club http://www.weymouthgolfclub.co.uk
In our First 6 months of riding we took out 215 Passengers, unfortunately Lockdown kicked in during 2020 and we only managed 188 passengers, but we secured our 2nd Trishaw thanks to the National Lottery Community Fund, since then through the kindness of local residents and various Grants we have purchased 2 more Trishaws, the 3rd Trishaw in arrived in May 2021 on Portland and was named the ” Jenny Wren” thanks to Elaine Smith who made a very generous donation and was actively involved with the Wrens for many years.
Our 4th Trishaw arrived in Bridport in September 2021 and is housed at Bridport Medical Centre.
From April 2021 -Oct 2021 we have travelled with over 600 passengers and on the 5th October 2021 we carried our 1000th passengers taking out a group from Kingsley Court Care Home http://www.friarycare.co.uk
With the help of a great team of volunteers we have built connections with local care homes, support groups in the community.
If you are keen to get involved either with the running of the charity or as a pilot, please get in contact by email to email@example.com
