Town of Canmore

Cycling without Age

The right to wind in your hair!

Cycling Without Age is a program that is available to local seniors. Trishaw bicycles, pedaled by trained volunteers take seniors with limited mobility out for rides. The seniors are then able to get outside, make new inter-generational friendships, connect with the community, and feel the wind in their hair.

Rides leave from the Canmore Civic Centre, the Bow River Seniors Lodge, Origin at Spring Creek or the Canmore Hospital. The rides are approximately one hour long. Along the way, you may stop to watch children playing at the park or enjoy the beautiful river and mountain views. On the way back from your ride, you may want to stop for a complimentary coffee, tea, or treat at one of our partner café’s.

The trishaws come equipped with an electric assist motor to help the volunteers pedal up hills, as well as a weather hood and rain and wind proof blanket to keep the seniors comfortable and warm. The trishaws will accommodate 1-2 passengers (snugly).


How do I sign up?

If you or someone you know would like to sign up for a ride, please stop by the FCSS office at the Canmore Civic Centre to fill out a registration package, or call 403-678-7136.

"I always look forward to our bike rides because it is a chance for Ellie and I to spend quality time with each other. I enjoy pedaling the two of us around and look forward to the Cycling Without Age program so we can sit together enjoying our time outside. Thank you to everyone who helps programs like this run; they make this community a great place to live."
