“I miss cycling and getting fresh air.”
This is what we hear from seniors living in communities like Bethany Village. Many residents no longer have the physical ability to bike around town, but they still miss the freeing feeling. That is the mission behind Cycling Without Age: We want to give seniors the opportunity to feel the wind rush through their hair.
All Bethany Village employees, residents, family members, and community members are invited to join us as volunteer pilots! The training kickoff for this year’s cycling program is Wednesday, June 6, at 11:30 AM and again at 5:30 PM in the West Education Room.
All new volunteer pilots must undergo a safety training and prove their competence on the rickshaw. This training will take approximately 1 hour. Previously trained pilots should also plan to attend this kickoff meeting for the first 30 minutes to meet Erin Emenheiser, rickshaw coordinator, and to review cycling procedures.
