"We are raising funds for Cycling Without Age -DC's launch costs. Although Cycling Without Age -DC is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit endeavor -- the organizers and rickshaw 'pilots' are volunteers and the rides are free -- to get the program rolling requires initial costs of about $10,000. Our first rickshaw is arriving from Denmark this month, payment is due shortly, and we will need additional funds for transport, advertising, maintenance, and operational costs. We would like to fund at least half this campaign by February 15 and the remainder by February 29.

We’ve been organizing with volunteer pilots, local bicycle advocacy groups, churches, and retirement communities excited about creating renewed relationships between old and young people through recreational bike rides around the city.

Cycling Without Age -DC will provide area senior citizens the opportunity to explore their local community in a new way and connect with the people in it."
