This Way Up: Cycling Without Age

This Way Up: Cycling Without Age

Take one trishaw - which is a little bit like a tricyle but with two wheels at the front. Then add two passengers and a volunteer driver and get out in the fresh air for a pedal! That's the essence of Cycling Without Age, a movement that started in Denmark 5 years ago and now has over 1,000 trishaws operating in 30 countries around the world. Here in New Zealand a large retirement village operator called Arvida is giving it a go, and there are plans to expand Cycling Without Age to community centres and marae across the country.This Way Up's Simon Morton visits a retirement community in Rotorua to find out if cycling could be the one of the keys to a happier and healthier old age.
