May 30, 2018 – West Bend, WI – Seniors from the Samaritan Health Center went for a spin Wednesday afternoon as they tested a new rickshaw as part of the Cycling Without Age program.
The 3-wheeler gives senior citizens a chance to enjoy the thrill of bicycle riding again… without the work.
The rickshaws are popular in European countries and the Samaritan Health Center acquired one to give residents a chance to enjoy the outdoors and bike paths in West Bend.
This summer the annual Amazing Ride for Alzheimer’s will be raising money for a second rickshaw at the Samaritan Health Center. My 15-year-old niece Audrey will be traveling with me this year. We leave June 30 for Whitefish Point, Michigan and the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum.
100-percent of the money raised will help pay for the rickshaw. We are selling bicycle and automobile-size license plates. The sponsorship can include your business name and logo or your name. We’ll send a post card from the road, bike a day in tribute to your loved one and at the end of the tour we’ll autograph the license plate and return it to you as your part of the adventure.
