Use your cycling skills for some good. Here are three amazing projects you can be part of.

In the UK many elderly citizens feel isolated. This can be for a number of reasons, one cause is the individual having mobility issues.

It's time to take action. These projects cater to many peoples needs in a number of ways. They support, enable and inspire those who need it most. However, they can only continue if people like you help. Below are three cycle projects you can be part of, join now to improve the lives of people in your community.

Cycle Without Age UK

"Innovation through conventional means - reducing isolation & promoting engagement - one ride at a time."

What is it?

Cycle Without Age is a global non-profit movement founded in Copenhagen (now established in 38 countries). This initiative came up with a solution, to help older people get back on their bicycles. They acheived this by offering free bike rides in a trishaw.

Through such a simple action, Cycle Without Age has created immense opportunity for elderly citizens to continue being part of their local community.

How it works

Signing up for a bike ride can be as frequent or as rare as you want it to be. How frequently you want to volunteer is up to you. Currently, more than 10,000 volunteers (globally) have enjoyed helping the elderly explore the outside of their nursing homes and out on bikes.

What will you ride?

You will cycle with the awesome Trishaw!

Location: 21 Locations all over the UK
