Take Part in Safe and Scenic Rides on the Arbutus Greenway Saturday September 28th from 10:00 – 2:00pm!

 

Cycling Without Age (CWA) Vancouver, in association with Kitsilano Neighbourhood house and the Westside Seniors Hub, are hosting safe and scenic Trishaw rides along the Arbutus Greenway on September 28th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. 

Trishaws are three-wheeled cycles where you sit in the front and experienced pilots push you from behind. Our mission is to break the elderly free from social isolation. Make them smile. Make new memories, and let them be part of society again and thereby renew their appetite for life itself. We give them the right to wind in their hair.   

Cycling Without Age is based on generosity and kindness. It starts with the obvious generous act of taking one or two elderly or less-abled people out on a bike ride. It’s a simple act that everyone can do.  We’ll ride at a leisurely pace, allowing you to sense the environment, be present in the moment and meet people along the way who will be curious and want to learn more about Cycling Without Age because you make time to stop and talk. Elderly people have so many stories that will be forgotten if we don’t reach out and listen to them. We tell stories, we listen to stories on the bike and we also document the stories when we share them via word of mouth or on social media
