Project SPOTLIGHT 2022 – Cycling Without Age
September 8 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Organized by BrokerTeam Insurance, an Ontario based insurance brokerage, Project SPOTLIGHT is a corporate responsibility initiative that brings to light many overlooked social needs of our community.
This year, Project SPOTLIGHT is supporting Cycling Without Age-Hamilton & Burlington Chapter, an organization that aims to connect seniors back to the community with free trishaw rides in nature.
Cycling Without Age’s volunteers visit senior facilities around the community and offer rides on the tailormade Trishaws (three wheeled electric assist bicycles). The program gives them wind in their hair, the ability to connect with nature, and the chance to share their stories. Presented by Project SPOTLIGHT a local exhibition of CWA services will set-up in Unionville to introduce the York Region to CWA’s mission on September 8th.. This exhibition allows our local seniors a chance to ride down the Historic Main Street Area in the Trishaws piloted by local volunteers.
Join Markham Cycles and Cycling Without Age outside NextDoor Restaurant on Thurs, Sept 8th at 3:30PM and ride alongside one of two trishaws through Rouge Valley Trail. Three separate group rides will depart at 3:30PM, 4:15PM, and 5:00PM. Look for the Markham Cycles banner and table for the start point.
*Please note, Trishaws operate at a very low speed. Group ride participants must be comfortable riding at a walking pace or slower.
