Kath (on the right of the bike) has been enjoying rides on Trixie, our Trio Bike Taxi, from The Chocolate Works Care Village to Rowntree Park through the winter. Kath says that Park is so lovely and that the weather is always beautiful when she visits. She misses getting out and about – she used to be part of walking groups for years, and loved walking. She also used to swim in the river in York when she was 8 years old!
Emily, one of the Cycling Without Age Pedallers, reports a lovely story from a recent ride:
“In the park, a gentlemen was marveling at the bike and stopped to chat with Kath. He said “what a wonderful way to travel!” And Kath agreed and they started to chat. Apparently, he was 82 and Kath told him proudly that she turns 100 this year. The man was so impressed and shook her hand and even did a little dance. It was a really lovely moment!”.
