In the TV programme 'Britts Gouwe Ouwen', host Britt Dekker joins the caregivers in the Sweelinckhof nursing home. Britt entertains the residents by baking cakes and organizing a bingo and she has hilarious and sometimes moving conversations. With her new program Britt wants to inspire her followers and viewers to work in elder care, because she thinks these golden oldies deserve more attention.

In the first episode Britt also makes a bike ride to the supermarket with a few residents. She uses the Van Raam Fun2Go duo bike, which in the beginning of the episode is renamed the 'Britt Mobile' and is waiting on a red carpet. The Fun2Go is, as you can see in the episode, very suitable for cycling together with older people or to use as a bicycle taxi for the elderly.

Fun2Go duo bike by Van Raam is suitable for elderly and care facilities

Side-by-side tandem Fun2Go very suitable for care facility

The Van Raam Fun2Go duo bike is a very suitable multi-person bike for the elderly and for care facilities. A big advantage of this bike is that both riders do not have to be in the same physical condition. With the Fun2Go there is one main driver who controls the bicycle, can steer and brake it. The co-driver can cycle at his or her own pace. The Fun2Go always has 8 gears on the driver's side, on the co-driver's side there is the possibility of a freewheel hub, an 8-speed hub, a shiftable freewheel hub or a combination.

With the Fun2Go you sit next to each other, the main driver always has a good view on the co-driver and you can have a nice chat while cycling. Because the Fun2Go has no entry, most people can easily get on the side-by-side tandem. The optional rotatable seat makes this even easier.

Many care facilities have a duo bike, so it is often possible for family to rent or borrow it for a day. Volunteers and caregivers also often go cycling with elderly people from care institutions.

Advantages Fun2Go for the elderly

The use of the Fun2Go by and for the elderly and care institutions for the elderly has several advantages, including:

  • No entry; you can easily sit down on the Fun2Go
  • One main driver steering and braking
  • The main driver always has a good view of the co-driver and there is the possibility to communicate
  • Comfortable seats with backrest

The duo bike Fun2Go is suitable for two persons. If you want to cycle with more people then this is possible by connecting a FunTrain duo bike trailer behind a Fun2Go with towbar. This creates a bicycle train and two extra people can ride along.

The main driver of the front Fun2Go controls the entire bike train and is the only one who can steer and brake.

The FunTrain trailer is very suitable for (care) institutions, homes, residential groups and other environments where supervisors want to make a trip together with clients or residents. One supervisor can then go out with three residents / elderly / clients.
