Mission

What better way to share our passion of cycling than taking folks in assisted living and memory units outside for a bike ride in fresh air. What better way to improve one’s mood, wellbeing, and sleep? Cycling through the neighborhood park and trails improves our friend’s quality of life through conversation and storytelling, reading the signs of the seasons, seeing hawks soar and bunny rabbits hop about. Interaction with green spaces and nature encourages sensory stimulation, which can have restorative effects on the mental wellbeing of older people. The green grass of the park and Pope’s Bluff with the evergreen trees may also provide benefits for mental health, cognition, mood, mobility, and physical function.

Pikes Peak Breaking Away CWA, Inc.

Life unfolds at all ages, young and old, and can be thrilling, fun, sad, beautiful and meaningful. Cycling Without Age (CWA) is about letting people age in a positive context – fully aware of the opportunities that lie ahead when interacting in their local community. Thus, was born Pikes Peak Breaking Away CWA. Pikes Peak Breaking Away CWA is affiliated with the international CWA and we are one of 2700 chapters worldwide providing bike rides to seniors living in assisted living and memory units.

Our goal is to take these seniors into the outdoors where they feel the sun on their face and the wind blowing through their hair. We pedal into a local park where we stop and talk to children, dog walkers, get doggie pets and licks, sit in the shade and watch the park activities. Founded in 2012 in Copenhagen, CWA is now in 52 countries with 3,700 trishaws and 35,000 trained cycle pilots. Over 2.5 million rides have been given to over 575,000 people served.
