The Right to Feel the Wind in Your Hair
What we do.
We are a group of volunteers committed to supporting a higher quality of life for care home residents by offering them the opportunity to get outside and to feel the wind in their hair.
We use an electric motor assisted “trishaw” which has room for two passengers who have an uninterrupted view. Each ride takes up to an hour but might be shorter depending on how far the park is and where the passengers would like to go. We keep to back roads and cycle paths as far as possible.
All our volunteer “pilots” are fully trained in using the trishaw and are confident to ride the trishaw safely at all time. We are fully insured.
We do not charge for this service as all costs are covered by generous donations.
We are part of a global movement! There are over 1200 cities and towns around the world where Cycling Without Age groups take older people out on jaunts.

- Love Park Rides suspendedRegrettably we’ve decided to stop doing the ‘love parks’ rides in Endcliffe and Weston Parks with immediate effect. Though technically still within guidelines, we think we need to respect requirements to reduce the range of social contacts.Continue reading “Love Park Rides suspended”
