Miravida Living Hosting Cycling Without Age American Summit 2018 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin
In 2015, Miravida Living was the first elder care service provider in the U.S. to start a Cycling Without Age program. The program was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark by Ole Kassow who wanted to help elders get back on their bicycles and spend more time outdoors. Understanding some of these individuals may have limited mobility, he introduced rickshaws. Today, Miravida Living, has a fleet of seven rickshaws allowing residents abundant opportunities to spend more time outdoors touring the community and sharing stories with volunteer pilots, all while feeling the wind in their hair.
Miravida Living is honored to host the first Cycling Without Age American Summit. Leaders representing chapters and affiliates from all over the world have been invited to join us and share their experiences. During the summit we will discuss current practices and generate new ideas to enhance the well-being and quality of life for elders, increase mobility, promote intergenerational activities, positive aging, social innovations and more.
The Cycling Without Age American Summit 2018 is taking place Aug. 21-24. Registration is open through July 21. The participation fee is $420, which includes a welcome packet, workshops, snacks and many of the meals. Register today!
