Cycling Without Age was started in Denmark in 2012 by Ole Kassow. Ole wanted to help the elderly get back on their bicycles, but he had to find a solution to their limited mobility. His answer was a trishaw and he started offering free bike rides to the local nursing home residents. Since then, Cycling Without Age has spread to 42 countries around the world.
In October 2016, Singapore became the first country in Asia to open a Cycling Without Age chapter. As a registered charity, CWA Singapore not only uses the trishaws as an intervention tool for socio-emotional well-being, but also runs other programmes to engage and empower the seniors of Singapore to live out their best years yet!
