Foundation for the elderly uses duo bike
In the city of Arnhem (the Netherlands) the SWOA foundation, a foundation for the wellbeing of elderly people, also came up with an initiative. The foundation is committed to helping the elderly discover what is still possible and to use their talents. They believe that older people can do more than they think and help the elderly to do so. For example, they use a Fun2Go duo bike from Van Raam. This duo bike is used by the foundation to let the elderly and volunteers cycle together.
Because of the current corona measures, this is not possible at the moment. However, SWOA is now using the duo bike for households. This means that two people living in the same house can take the duo bike for a ride through the Arnhem neighbourhoods. In this way, elderly people can go outside again or someone in the family for whom cycling is not a matter of course, can cycle again. For more information see the SWOA website (in Dutch).
