TheCycling without Age initiative was founded in Denmark in 2012 and is now a permanent fixture in over fifty countries worldwide.
We want to share the joy of a bike ride with people who can no longer pedal under their own power.
That is why we take rickshaw rides to the park, to the Rhine or to beloved places.
Our goal is to create mobility and give quality of life.More about the organisation
For our rickshaw rides to the park, the Rhine or other beloved places, we are looking for volunteers to support us as a pilot!
If you want to make a gift of your time, becomea pilot with CyclingwithoutAge (RoA). Here you can really make a difference!
You meetnice people as part of the RoAcommunity. You do something for your fitness - for free!
Every rickshaw ride is like a little adventure, an encounter where different life stories are exchanged between pilots and seniors during the ride. Here and there even friendships for life are formed.
As a pilot, you undertake tours of about 1 hour with the elderly passengers, preferably in the close and attractive surroundings of the rickshaw location. The rickshaws are nowdistributed at 15 locationsin Cologne, and more rickshaws will be added in the spring.
Age: (at least) 18 years
As a pilot you do NOT have to be a "bicycle professional". Because the rickshaws are special designs that allow a safe and comfortable ride without much effort. They have an electric motor that supports your pedalling power.
...you enjoycycling and are communicative.
Please note: For this volunteering opportunity, you need German skills on the level „Advanced German skills“.
If you are interested in joining as a pilot, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Tell us something about yourself:
- What is your motivation for becoming a pilot?
- How often would you like to drive? Only on weekends or also during the week? (Even if you only have time every 2 weeks, for example, this is a welcome help)
- And important: In which district do you live?
Your support is needed on a long-term basis.
Am I covered by accident and/or casualty insurance during the project?
Only casualty insurance
For this project, we ask you to arrange an individual meeting.
