We begin the journey, and the story of Cycling Without Age, in Ireland: the first trishaw arrived in Blackrock, Dublin in March 2017.  Since then, we have been demonstrating it to care homes, local authorities, and sponsors and spreading the word, with great response. Clara continues as a volunteer, with no paid staff, to promote and explain the CWA concept until people take up this brilliant initiative.

Cycling Without Age Ireland won an award in 2017 from the Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Academy in 2017!

Social Entrepreneurs Ireland supports social entrepreneurs through their Academy for Social Entrepreneurs and Awards Programme, which provides direct support to high-potential emerging social entrepreneurs. CWA Ireland received one of three awards for the Academy 2017 programme.

Getting a Trishaw for your local community

Getting started with a Cycling Without Age trishaw is an amazing experience. Nothing beats witnessing the joy of the older or mobility-impaired people, the pilots and personnel interact on and around the trishaw and seeing the smiles of passengers coming back from their first ride with the wind in their hair, rosy cheeks and full of stories. We love to experience the movement of Cycling Without Age spreading all over the world and always welcome more to join.

To start your CWA journey, let me help you by speaking with you to answer all your questions. You may be a care home, a community hospital, a local authority, or a local organisation keen to get a trishaw. Contact me at We already have experience in working with nursing home staff and management, local  councils, other volunteer organisations, cyclists federations as well as great ideas of how to get the initiative off the ground and locals excited about it.
