What is Cycling Without Age?

Cycling Without Age is a volunteer led project that aims to replace a walk for people with reduced mobility. Trishaws are power assisted bikes that carry two passengers.

Locations in Fingal

We have trishaws in Skerries, St. Catherine's Park in Lucan, Santry Demesne and at the Baldoyle to Portmarnock greenway.

How can I book?

Booking is easy. Just email [email protected] with you preferred time, date and location and we will confirm with you.

Next Steps

After you get your confirmation email, simply meet your volunteer pilot at the chosen time and location and enjoy your spin.

If you have any questions or need more information simply email [email protected] and we'll be in touch.

How Can I Help?

We're seeking volunteers to support us in delivering the best possible experience for people in our community with mobility limitations.

We're seeking volunteers for a number of roles within the Cycling Without Age Initiative in Fingal. As a volunteer you could be involved in managing the day to day running of the Trishaws, arranging bookings, matching available volunteers and ensuring that the bikes are charged and in good working order before each ride.

What is involved in being a Volunteer Pilot?

By becoming a pilot with Cycling Without Age, you can make a difference in a rewarding community while meeting new people and even getting some free exercise. As long as you can ride a bicycle and have a desire to help others, then there is plenty of space for you. Our pilots are everyone from directors to senior citizens and students. All chapters worldwide have developed pilot training.

When you volunteer and have done your Tri-shaw training you will be able to take passengers out on cycles in your local Cycling Without Age Area at times that you are available. Each trip lasts approx. 45mins and starts and finishes in the same place.

The Cycling Without Age Website has lots of further information on being a pilot: https://cyclingwithoutage.org/the-pilot/
