Residents enjoy rides to the park with York Bike Belles
“Residents have been enjoying rides on Trixie, a Trio Bike Taxi, from Chocolate Works Care Village to Rowntree Park through the winter. They absolutely love the park and that the weather is always beautiful when they visits. One resident, Kath, misses getting out and about – she used to be part of walking groups for years, and loved walking. She also used to swim in the river in York when she was 8 years old!
Emily, one of the Cycling Without Age Pedallers, reports a lovely story from a recent ride:
“In the park, a gentlemen was marveling at the bike and stopped to chat. He said “what a wonderful way to travel!” Kath agreed and they started to chat. Apparently, he was 82 and Kath told him proudly that she turns 100 this year. The man was so impressed and shook her hand and even did a little dance. It was a really lovely moment!”.”
Thank you to York Bike Belles for offering this service to our residents.
