More than 8,000 pilots ensure that the elderly get out of their nursing home

There is no age limit to cycle, even if some help may be useful. Developing the intergenerational potential of cycling is precisely the objective of "Cycling Without Age", which proposes rickshaw rides for older people across 23 countries worldwide.

Started in 2012 by a Dane who offered free bike rides to the local nursing home residents, the movement has now spread nationally and globally. As of November 2015, more than 63 of Denmark's 98 municipalities are offering Cycling Without Age from well over 400 rickshaws – and the numbers are still growing.

Volunteers (pilots) sign up for bike rides with the elderly through a simple booking system as often or as rarely as they want to.
