This Organization Delights Elderly People Who Thought They’d Never Bike Again
Ole Kassow of Copenhagen literally helps others feel the wind in their hair. He loves cycling so much that he thought it would be nice for the elderly to have that experience again. He attached a rickshaw to his bicycle and visited a nursing home, taking people out for rides. Other people heard about what he was doing and decided to volunteer as well. What resulted was Cycling Without Age, an organization that has since spread to 41 countries. This kind endeavor allows older people to feel again the freedom and mobility that cycling provides.
