Cycling Without Age
How would you like to bring the joy of cycling back to “oldsters” who can no long ride on their own?
HBC has been asked by Bethany Village to help recruit “pilots” for two rickshaw type trikes that will be used to take residents for 45-60 minute rides through the neighborhoods around Bethany including stops at parks, ice cream shops or other points of interest. Each trike can carry 2 people, a resident and a staff person, and the bikes have electric assist so they are easy to pilot.
It’s been found that the experience of “feeling the wind in your hair” can alleviate depression for riders. The pilots get great satisfaction from helping the oldsters feel alive again and bringing back wonderful memories.
