Everybody has the right to get wind in their hair.
Cycling Without Age is a joy spreading movement that changes the every day life of residents at nursing homes and asssisted living facilities. It was started in Denmark in 2012 and is spreading to towns and cities around the world. To bring CWA to St. George will show the people here that cycling has no age and that everybody has the right to get wind in their hair.
Volunteers, called pilots, offer free trishaw bicycle rides to elderly people. Experience from Denmark and around the world show that Cycling Without Age has the potential to build strong communities, citizenship and friendships. It will also put Saint George on the map for doing something extraordinary for the elderly.
In order to start Cycling Without Age, we need trishaws and insurance for the program. A trishaw is a three wheeled, highly specialized bicycle with room for two passengers in front and a driver (pilot) behind the passengers. The design of the trishaw, and the electrical assist power motor, make it very comfortable for the passengers and easy pedal for the pilot.
The current goal is to raise $ 30,000. This will make it possible to purchase two trishaws and to cover insurance and liability costs for the first year of the program. Cycling Without Age St George is an initiative of the SUBA(Southern Utah Bicycle Alliance) which is a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations to SUBA-CWA St George are tax deductible.
We invite sponsors and in-kind donors to support our efforts in giving the elderly citizens of St. George the right to wind in their hair.
