Cycling as a cure for feelings of loneliness, alienation, and depression
Cycling Without Age is based on generosity and kindness. It starts with the obvious generous act of taking one or two older adults or less-abled people out on a bike ride. It’s a simple act that everyone can do.
Now operating in Santa Barbara
Today we have a local chapter operated by John Seigel-Boettner.
At present more than 1,200 chapter locations around the world offer Cycling Without Age from well over 2,000 trishaws – and the numbers are still growing. More than 13,000 pilots ensure that the older adults get out of their nursing homes, out on the bikes to enjoy the fresh air and the community around them. Cycling Without Age unlocks memories, stories, and vitality as only a bicycle ride can.
Know an older adult who would enjoy a ride? Someone who would like to be a pilot? Reach out to John.
