A society offering the thrill of a bike ride to the less able of all ages is back in the saddle.
Steve Duck, president of the Cycling Without Age Society, said the organization is once again offering free trishaw bike rides starting April. A trishaw resembles a bench on wheels, where two people can sit. A pilot riding a modified bike attached to the back of the seat then takes them around town.
All rides with volunteer pilots last about an hour, weather permitting, and residents can ride alone or with some one in their safety bubble, said Duck.
“Our goal is the wind in your hair and a smile on your face,” he said.
The group, a registered charity, provides sanitized helmets and encourages riders to bring their own blankets to keep warm.
The society launched its service in the spring of 2019 following its creation. Bookings are available seven days a week through www.cyclingwithoutagesociety.com with donations welcome.
