Cycling Without Age: Nursing home residents take a spin on trishaws

Nursing home residents across the country could soon be able to enjoy bike rides on a trishaw.

The Cycling Without Age Initiative aims to encourage companies to sponsor the bikes for their local home.

Pilots then sign up to give free rides to the elderly, who sit in a seat at the front of the bike.

Ernie and Phyllis from Dublin's Ashbury nursing home went for a spin on the trishaw earlier.

"Getting out in the fresh air and enjoying the sunshine is fabulous," they said.
