A specially adapted bicycle, otherwise known as a trishaw, has played its part in helping the elderly community in Weston Shore enjoy the great outdoors.

The trishaw, funded by the Prime Foundation, can have up to two passengers and has enabled volunteers to connect with elderly members of the community who are most at risk of isolation and loneliness.

Sustrans aim to make it easier for people to walk, cycle and wheel in areas where this may be challenging for a number of reasons – including personal circumstance or an inaccessible environment.

“‘The trishaw has had an impact in helping the older generation look for activities, connecting them with communities and the environment which has been so important for their mental health.’”
