Local News

OSHKOSH, Wisc. ( WFRV ) – Cycling Without Age is a movement that was started by Ole Kassow in Copenhagen in 2012.

Miravida Living in Oshkosh was the first elder care facility in the U.S. to launch the program in 2015.

The facility now has a fleet of seven trishaws that volunteers use to regularly take residents on bike rides throughout the community.

The program aims to get the elderly out of their nursing homes and into the fresh air and the community around them.
