Interested in getting your pilot’s licence?

‘Nothing beats … seeing the smiles of passengers coming back from their first ride with wind in their hair, rosy cheeks and full of stories.’

Cycling Without Age (CWA) riders take aged care home residents out in a trishaw around local bike paths. It is a great outing and an opportunity for the residents to tell their stories and share their experiences. The movement was initiated in Copenhagen and is now world-wide.

An invitation

Are you interested in finding what it’s like to be a volunteer ‘pilot’, giving trishaw rides for the elderly, frail and disabled?

Come and see CWA in action. Check out the trishaw, talk to CWA pilots, and see first-hand how much aged care residents enjoy a trishaw tour around the local area in the fresh air.
