#WORLD SENIOR CITIZENS DAY
Cycling Without Age (CWA) is a social movement originating in Copenhagen, Denmark and was launched in 2012 by Ole Kassow. The purpose of the organisation is to invite socially isolated seniors back into their local communities by engaging them in mutually beneficial and stimulating trishaw rides with volunteers (trishaws are also known as cycle rickshaws, bike taxi and tri-cycle taxi).
Ole wanted to help the elderly get back on their bicycles, but he had to find a solution to their limited mobility. The answer was a trishaw and he started offering free bike rides to the local nursing home residents.
