About the Non-Profit Organisation

Radeln ohne Alter KÖLN

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.

About the volunteering opportunity

Become a rickshaw driver for senior citizens

For our rickshaw rides to the park, the Rhine or other beloved places, we are looking for volunteers to support us as a pilot!

This way you can help

Your Tasks

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.

    Whats needed

    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 will fit into our team if

    ...you enjoycycling and are communicative.
