Cycling Without Age- Cycling Geelong acknowledges the support from Geelong Connected Communities

Cycling Geelong acknowledges the support received from Geelong Connected Communities for the Cycling Without Age program at MACS.

Cycling Geelong’s application for a grant towards the purchase of a second CWA Triobike was successful, resulting in a grant of $3000.  Along with our club donation of $2000, a matching donation of $2000 from Geelong Sustainability, fundraising by both groups, and some individual donations, has gone a long way towards the purchase.

Cycling Without Age Geelong’s first chapter was launched at MACS on May 23rd.  Visitors had the chance to welcome the two Triobikes, their pilots Leanne, Robyn and Tony, and their MACS resident passengers, before a formal launch and afternoon tea in MACS’ chapel.

Thanks to Geelong Connected Communities for their generous support of this program, which enables aged care residents to enjoy the pleasure of a slow social bike ride in our beautiful city.
