08 Feb Cycling without Age
The Cycling without Age initiative originated in Copenhagen in 2012 and has gradually spread around the world. Cycling without Age clubs now exist in 50 countries. In Austria, there are 28 clubs today. The first one was founded in Lustenau in 2014.
The latest addition is the voluntary club in Ebreichsdorf in Lower Austria. Elisabeth Füssl, a Factum employee, founded this association in 2021. As everywhere else, free rickshaw rides are offered for seniors and people with limited mobility. Volunteers are trained as ‘pilots’ of the rickshaws. Interested people make an appointment by phone or email. They are picked up on site and then driven through the community with their pilot. Afterwards they are guided back home. The rides are very popular and can also be booked as vouchers.
