Danish Cyclists visit to Geelong – Cycling Without Age

Multi-cultural Aged Care, North Geelong

Monday 9th October, 2017

Six young Danish cyclists are spending a short time in Geelong, as they tour eastern Australia riding passenger tricycles, and promoting Cycling Without Age.  This morning, they visited macs (Multi-cultural Aged Care) in Weddell Parade, North Geelong.

Residents, their family members and staff had the opportunity to take a ride.  Vicki, Rosemary and Helen, from Cycling Geelong all had the opportunity to try out the bikes – which have electric power assist (not used on today’s rides).

Once people got into the passenger seat, it was smiles all around, with reminiscences flowing about the last time they were able to be on a bike, and general excitement.

Despite the cold south-westerly wind, everyone had a great time.  Once up and running, with two new tricycles, the residents and cycling pilots will be able to explore Geelong, with the first route to the waterfront already mapped out.

Cycling Geelong is a partner with Cycling Without Age, Geelong Sustainability and macs (Multi-Cultural Aged Care)  in Geelong’s first Cycling Without Age chapter.

We’ve already started recruiting cycling pilots.  If you’re interested, contact Vicki or Helen.
