This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. After having heard several stories about the older generation missing the freedom, the joy and the mobility of cycling, Ole asked himself: "How can we get these people back on the bicycles?" Ole decided to show up at his local nursing home with a rented rickshaw. This changed his life - and the lives of the passengers and the volunteers who came across Ole and his project, "Cycling Without Age".
Ole Kassow is the founder of “Cycling Without Age” - http://cyclingwithoutage.org - an initiative which gives senior citizens the opportunity to get out of nursing homes and experience the city and the nature by rickshaw.
Because of Ole, municipalities in several cities across Denmark have now bought rickshaws for their nursing homes and a network of volunteers offer residents the opportunity to venture outside and feel the wind in their hair. This meeting of generations provides a unique opportunity for the elderly to share their stories and experiences, which are often triggered by these trips out into the local environment.
This initiative not only strengthens communities across generations, but it contributes to both physical and mental well-being of the elderly and volunteers, thus giving nursing homes and municipalities a golden opportunity to stimulate and promote health and mobility.

El Caminito del Rey is located right next to the sleepy town of El Chorro in Malaga, Spain. Construction of the one meter wide, three kilometers long walkway through El Chorro canyon started in 1901 and were completed in 1905. Rising a 100 meters above the Canyons floor, the path cuts the canyon’s giant limestone cliffs in half with another 75 meters of sheer rock jutting above it. It was originally build to provide access for workers between the hydroelectric power plants in El Chorro Falls.
