Double rider cycle project in Putten (the Netherlands)
Zorggroep Noordwest-Veluwe (care group) started a double rider cycle project about 7 years ago. This initiative is meant to allow people who cannot cycle well, to cycle. The first double rider cycle stood at residential care home Elim in Putten. However, this bike was used so much that later a second double rider cycle was purchased. This bike was for residential care center de Schauw. There are now more than 30 volunteers who cycle daily with the participants of the care centers.

The bicycles are not only used by the care centers, other elderly people and people with disabilities from Putten may use the bicycle for a voluntary contribution.
The thrift store in Putten has already helped the Care Group. At the end of 2017, Kringloopwinkel Overnodig donated its turnover of 1 week, so that a new double rider cycle could be purchased.
