CWA North Shore Chicago Chapter

Welcome to CWA in North Shore Chicago Chapter 

When we saw this video we knew we had to be part of Cycling Without Age (CWA)! We are happy to join the CWA family and became operational in January 2020! We will begin giving rides at our first Senior Community partner in the spring.

CWA is an amazing experience. Nothing beats witnessing the joy of the elderly and volunteer pilots interact on and around the trishaw and seeing the smiles of passengers coming back from their first ride with the wind in their hair, rosy cheeks and full of stories. The riders sit in front of the Trishaw-a specially designed pedicab-and a Pilot pedals from the back.

We are building a GLOBAL MOVEMENT, which is now creating better lives in more than 40 countries worldwide.
