Cycling Without Age comes to Ireland!

Cycling Without Age is a Danish concept created in 2012 The idea is to take residents of nursing and care homes out for a spin on a specially designed rickshaw bicycle, piloted by volunteer cyclists. Clara Clark & Charles Mollan were granted the first Irish royalty-free licence. Clara is a long-time S2S group member.

The first rickshaw bike arrived in Dublin on Monday, 13th March 2017. We were delighted to take up the invitation from the Dublin Cycling Campaign to participate in the Dublin St Patrick’s Day Parade under the banner of 200 Years of Cycling. See the photo of us at the start of the parade.  We purchased this first bike from personal funds, so as to have a model to demonstrate to nursing homes and sponsors. We hope to have this bike crowd-funded.

Now that we have the bike here, we will be happy to talk to people, organisations, nursing homes, potential sponsors and others about how to promote the concept of Cycling Without Age ( here. We already have expressions of interest from some sponsors and organisations, and offers from volunteer pilots, whom we will train in the bike’s use.  Please let us know if you would like more information.
