Cycling without age is an non-profit activity where volunteers take out elderly people living in retirement homes, as well as people with disabilities, on bicycle trips in custom-built tri-wheeled bicycles. The business was started in Copenhagen in 2013 by Ole Kassow and is now spreading in both Sweden and the world. The elderly passengers who may not be able to get out of their homes very often get a little adventure in their everyday lives with fresh air, new visual impressions and the opportunity to create new relationships and memories. The business gives the elderly a valuable stimulus, the cyclists get exercise and exciting contacts over age limits.
