Marathon County

Cycling Without Age Marathon County – Enriching lives one ride at a time

Our Dream

We dream of creating a world together, in which the access to active citizenship creates happiness among our fellow elderly citizens by providing them with an opportunity to remain an active part of society and the local community.

We do that by giving them the right to wind in their hair, the right to experience the city and nature close up from the bicycle and by giving them an opportunity to tell their story in the environment where they have lived their lives.

That way we build bridges between generations and we reinforce trust, respect and the social glue in our society.

 

Are you interested in being a pilot?
Send an email to cwa.marathoncounty@gmail.com

 

Cycling Without Age Pilots will give older adults and adults with differing abilities the opportunity and excitement of being outdoors in the fresh air on a trishaw. Passengers will experience a new adventure, enjoy nature up close, share stories and make new intergenerational friendships while riding in the greater Wausau area, including Wausau’s River Front!

All pilots must complete a training session and background check.  Upcoming training will be early May 2019. Watch pilot training videos.

If you have any questions you may contact Halle Veenstra at cwa.marathoncouty@gmail.com
