In 2012, serendipity spurred Ole Kassow, a cycling enthusiast in Copenhagen, Denmark, to launch Cycling Without Age, a nonprofit organization that coordinates volunteer ‘pilots’ to take senior citizens for recreational bike rides on rickshaws.  In a very short time, Cycling Without Age has grown from a one man and one bike operation in Copenhagen to a multi-chapter organization serving elderly around the world with more than 600 rickshaws and thousands of enthusiastic pilots, partnering with retirement communities and other organizations.
