The volunteers of the foundation Cycling without Age (in Dutch: Fietsen alle Jaren) take vulnerable or no longer mobile people for a bike ride in a rickshaw. Jaap Huurman is one such volunteer who wants to ride a rickshaw in the Arnhem and Rheden regions. However, he is still looking for other volunteers who want to join him in his efforts for Cycling without Age.

Foundation Cycling without Age throughout the Netherlands

Cycling without Age (called Fietsen alle Jaren in the NL) was set up in the Netherlands 2014 by Boi Huisman in Nijmegen. He got the idea for it in Denmark. There he saw Ole Kassow (of Cycling Without Age) making people from the local nursing home happy with free rides on a rickshaw bike. By 2021, Cycling All Years will have become an independent foundation with initiatives in over 15 cities.

Cycling without Age in Arnhem and Rheden

Jaap Huurman would like to work as a volunteer in Arnhem and Rheden. In the program 'De Kracht van Samen' (The Power of Together) he tells presenter Gabrielle Kroos about his motivation. 'It's nice to be outdoors and active. In addition, it is also very pleasant to deal with the people. You make them happy with a bike ride, something they can no longer do on their own. Arnhem and Rheden are still a white spot on the map at the moment, and I would like to change that.'

Volunteers wanted for the rickshaw bike

Jaap hopes that more people will sign up as volunteers for Cycling without Age in Arnhem and Rheden. People who sign up for a ride on the rickshaw are matched with a volunteer. At the moment, I am only a volunteer for the Arnhem/Rheden region. That is actually too little.'
