I have been cycling when I can and I used to cycle to the campus most days so I’m all for this chain of thought but I’m sticking with my two wheels. Here’s the gist of the Scottish Government scheme to get older folk rolling:
‘The Cycling Without Age movement began in Denmark and encourages volunteers to take older people for bike rides, using comfortable and safe trishaws. More than twenty million people have watched a film featuring Falkirk’s Cycling Without Age project since it was posted online as part of BBC Three’s Amazing Humans series. A pilot project running in Falkirk is currently benefitting from £36,000 from the Scottish Government and the European Social Fund. However Social Security Minister Jeane Freeman has today confirmed additional support for similar projects across Scotland.’
I’ve yet to see such a thing in Ayr but I look forward to it. It reminds me that our former principal at UWs was a Rick Shaw!
