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? Our next pilot training will be scheduled in April 29, 30 2022.
Please email:


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 training sessions and a background check.   Watch pilot training videos.

The summer of 2022 we will offer rides at The Landing for community members!  Call The Landing to register for a ride. 715.841.1851  CWA pilots will also provide rides for clients/residents at Opportunity, Inc., Island Place, Riverview Terrace, North Central Health Care, Mount View Care Center, Birchwood Highland Apartments, Renaissance and Rennes in Weston.

If you have any questions you may contact Halle Veenstra at
