Cycling without Age trishaw rolls into town

Cycling without Age trishaw rolls into town

FREE trishaw rides will be available in Rockingham this month.

Cycling Without Age is an international not-for-profit organisation that allows elderly people to experience an outdoor ride on trishaw e-bikes, piloted by volunteer cyclists.

The program encourages aging in a positive context, using cycling as a means to bridge generations.

Cycling Without Age is already established in Australia, with chapters in NSW, Tasmania, South Australia and Victoria.

With help from several local businesses and community groups, Cycling Without Age will get rolling at the Autumn Centre at 10am on October 25.

Community groups have helped raise $21,000 for a trishaw and the aim is to have two trishaws in Rockingham.

Rides will also be offered at the City of Rockingham foreshore celebrations on October 26 and 27.

Anyone who would like to volunteer as a cyclist should contact Cycling Without Age — Rockingham on Facebook.
