Peddle power for all the people

By Claire Ottaviano

CYCLING is now open to everyone in Woodbridge, no matter your abilities.

Cycling Without Age launched its new location at Woodbridge Riverside Park this month to give free trishaw rides to all people who are unable to ride for themselves and to promote inclusion in the community.

Community ride captain and aged care worker Phillippa Perrella said it had been her dream to volunteer with a group that helped older and less-abled members of the community.

“In my role I see a lot of people who are socially isolated and its always been a passion of mine to find ways to connect people who might be in that situation,” she said.

“Cycling Without Age sounded ideal because anyone could do it and I was keen to help out.”

The Viveash resident lives within walking distance of the park and can ride trishaw ‘Richard’ to the site where free regular rides are offered on Sunday mornings, 9.30am to 11.30am.

The movement, Cycling Without Age,  started in Demark in 2012 and has since expanded to 51 countries with 2,500 chapter locations.
