We are all heading on the same path that our grandparents were on. It is an inevitable journey of life. Cycling Without Age reminds us of that relationship with our elders and on our five guiding principles that we abide by.
It starts with the simple act of generosity. Give our time to them when they gave us their care and time. There are a lot of stories to be shared through storytelling from our elders, but also from us. They want to listen to us too and through this bridge we form relationships. We take our time, and the act of cycling slowly helps us take in the experience and appreciate it. Without age is the principle of how life does not end at a given age, but instead we can embrace what each generation has to offer through something as simple as cycling.
The Grey Escape
Lean back and enjoy The Grey Escape, a half-hour documentary about a life-changing 4-day journey in which twenty elderly people deliver trishaws from Denmark to Norway. Use it professionally, use it at your fundraisers, watch it with future passengers, rock up your community – or just watch it for your own pleasure.
The elderly get wind in their hair. The cycling pilots get daily exercise.
Nicholai is 29. Valborg is 97. Every Friday, they take a bike ride around town.
