Take a Trishaw Ride This Summer

Tuesday, Aug. 15, from 9 a.m. to noon on Alki

“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike,” John F. Kennedy said.

That still holds true today no matter one’s age!

Thanks to our friends at Providence Mount St. Vincent, Senior Center members and friends are invited to take a ride on one of their unique trishaw bikes this summer on Alki. Guests sit on a comfortable seat while being pedaled by a volunteer.

Through grant funding facilitated by LeadingAge of Washington, the Mount received three of these specialized electric bikes and one wheelchair accessible unit through a program called Cycling without Age, which began in Denmark in 2012.

The team at Cycling Without Age knows that a lifelong love of cycling shouldn’t be deterred by one’s physical abilities or age.

We are also looking for volunteers to pedal the bikes. Contact Storey Squires at
