Come and be a volunteer Pilot in Napier's Chapter of Cycling Without Age.
Your volunteer hours can be as little as 2 hours per month or as many as you wish. You do need to be over 18 years old.
We have electric assist trio-bikes waiting for you to step on the pedals as a Pilot after you complete your short training.
OR You may prefer to start out as a Companion rider using your own manual or electric bike. The Companion rider volunteer helps the passenger to get in and out of the trio-bike.
Cycling Without Age Napier provides safe, secure and slow cycle trio-bike rides for older residents, low mobility elderly & those socially isolated by illness or disability.
Nothing beats witnessing the joy of the passengers, walkers, and children who interact on and around the Trio-bike (trishaw). We see the smiles of passengers coming back from their rides with wind in their hair, rosy cheeks and full of stories.
