Cycling Without Age

Cycling Without Age is a movement started in 2012 by Ole Kassow. Ole wanted to help the elderly get back on their bicycles, but he had to find a solution to their limited mobility. The answer was a trishaw and he started offering free bike rides to the local nursing home residents.

He then got in touch with a civil society consultant from the City of Copenhagen, Dorthe Pedersen (now Cycling Without Age), who was intrigued by the idea and together they bought the first 5 trishaws and launched Cycling Without Age, which has now spread to all corners of Denmark, and since 2015 to another 28 countries around the world.

Motor assist. Many cyclists would easily be able to ride the trishaw without motor assist, but to make riding available to everybody we recommend a small electric motor. Even cyclists in good physical shape find that they have more air for conversation if they use the motor (max 250W) occasionally. But don’t let the motor assist lull you into inactivity – it should still be a cycling experience. We advise against using more powerful motors of 500-750W, which can be bought in some countries. Such power is a safety hazard.


Ooops...
