Cycling Without Age: Enhancing the Lives of Seniors

Posted On: August 18, 2017

Cycling has many benefits. It is a fun and liberating activity that is a great form of exercise, can be used as transportation and can help explore nature.

Cycling Without Age (CWA) is an innovative program that has helped seniors stay active and stay connected with their communities. CWA is making it possible for seniors or those with mobility challenges to get back on their bicycles and enjoy their communities and nature.

The brochure Cycling Without Age: Enhancing the Lives of Seniors. The Ottawa Experience shares the experiences of Saint-Louis Residence. It presents useful tools for other long-term care homes who are interested in setting up a volunteer-based cycling program for their residents.
