Cycling Without Age Clontarf
Let’s face it getting old isn’t fun, but this shouldn’t stop us from getting out and about in the community and being an active citizen.
Cycling Without Age (CWA) offers our seniors, and possibly the less mobile, the opportunity to come for a slow-cycle spin piloted and accompanied by two CWA cyclist volunteers.
The group invite people around St Anne’s Park, to join them in getting people out for a spin and a chat. Sharing some stories and once again getting that sensation of cycle freedom on a specially designed bike called a ‘Trishaw’ where passengers enjoy feeling the ‘Wind in Their Hair’.
The group usually meet at the Red Stables car park entrance to St Anne’s Park with the cycles lasting about 1 ½ hours. Those wishing to go out for a spin can go alone or bring a friend, a neighbour or possibly a family member to accompany you on your cycle. A pilot does all the work on the Trishaw* and there is also have a support cyclist riding side by side on their own bike. All cycles finish off at Olives Café in the Red Stables for a cup of tea/coffee and a chat.

All volunteer pilot cyclists are fully trained on the CWA Trishaw and are also fully Garda Vetted for your security and comfort and there is absolutely no cost to the service which is a voluntary community initiative.
