HIGH RIVER, AB: Cycling Without Age is back, offering community members the chance to experience 'the right to wind in their hair.' This year, the program seeks to recruit and train new volunteers to pilot the trishaw bikes.

Volunteer pilots play a crucial role in enhancing passengers' social and emotional well-being by providing rides on electric pedal-assisted bikes. These rides help reconnect people with the outdoors and their community. Last year’s program saw our volunteer pilots take 270 passengers on 158 rides in the community!

Residents interested in volunteering should have availability to offer one or two rides per month and have the physical ability to ride an electric-assisted trishaw. A passion for community, relationship building, and enjoyment of the outdoors is an asset.

Cycling Without Age Canada notes the simple act of taking seniors for a bike ride helps them reconnect to their communities, nature, and the world around them. High River joined this program back in 2017 when the Town, in partnership with the Seniors Collective, applied for a grant to purchase trishaw bikes.

Over the seasons, Cycling Without Age has received incredible support from the community and the High River Hospital, Abbeyfield House, Seasons Retirement Communities, and the Medicine Tree Manor. We are excited to announce that this support will continue!

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer pilot or would like to book a ride, fill out the online forms above or contact the FCSS Resource Centre at or 403-652-8620.
