It's simple: a group of volunteers from Oporto want to ride with elderly people around the city on adapted bicycles. And to do that, they need you.

We are a group of Rotarians full of desire to bring to Portugal a project that already makes happy people in more than 30 countries. It's called Cycling Without Age and what it does is to allow the elderly to ride in extraordinary vehicles: Danish bicycles that carry a rider and two elderly people, with electric motor and lift access platform. They even bring a warm blanket to keep your legs warm and a weatherproof cover for rainy days. We are fortunate to have many friends in carehomes and day centers just waiting to ride with us, eager to tell us their stories and feel the wind in their hair. To buy this bike so special we need 5000€. With this money we know that we will do more than just pedaling: we will be adding to the lives of these people movement - a dimension that aging has taken away from them. We will allow them to feel more integrated, let them know that they  are still part of a community, part of their city.

With a tour we will be saying that we like them, that we respect them, that they belong.

Donate if you can and please share this campaign. We guarantee that every gesture of yours will make a difference.

Thank you for being here, for being who you are and for doing what you do.

About the author

We are a rotary club with about eight years of existence in the city of Porto with a wide experience in the field of solidarity. We have already taught computer science to the elderly in the past, and the pleasure of working with this very special population still moves us. We want to implement this project because it serves our mission to help others, because its value has been widely validated in other countries and because it's essence is exactly what we were looking for:

1. It is positive: strong impact on the pilot, the passengers and the community that sees us;

2. It is healthy: pedaling feels good, a bike ride feels better (especially to passengers with less mobility);

3. It is sustainable: all we need is a bicycle, our will and human strength;

4. It is eco friendly: we will not produce smoke, we will produce smiles and pink cheeks;

5. It is collaborative: alows us to enlarge our group of committed volunteers.
