Cycling Without Age is a movement started in 2012 in Copenhagen. The founder wanted to help the elderly get back on their bicycles, but he had to find a solution to their limited mobility. The answer was using a pedicab. He started offering free bike rides to the local nursing home residents.
Fast forward to today---and there are 1200 Cycling Without Age chapters worldwide. Volunteers, or pilots, sign up for bike rides with the elderly as often or as rarely as they want to. More than 13,000 pilots ensure that the elderly get out of their nursing homes, out on the bikes to enjoy the fresh air and the community around them. They give them the right to wind in their hair. It is an opportunity to hear their stories and let them visit places they may not have been awhile. It is a beautiful thing.
