PEDAL power is so much easier when you have somebody else doing all the hard work for you!
That’s what residents at Grange Crescent Residential Care Home discovered when they sat back and enjoyed the view – and let somebody else do the pedalling!
The home – one of the 10 properties operated across Sheffield by not for profit organisation Sheffcare – is one of the first in the city to sign up for the Cycling Without Age campaign.
Cycling Without Age started in Denmark in 2012, providing tribike rides to nursing home residents.
Now, with the support of Westfield Health, Grange Crescent residents in Nether Edge are sitting back and enjoying the health benefits of a cycle session without having to worry about the problems of pedalling.
“Our first session was a great hit,” said Grange Crescent manager Asha Oliver.
“Our aim is always to provide stimulation for all our residents and there are so many positives in getting out there and enjoying the environment.
“Cycling Without Age allows all our residents to enjoy the benefits of getting out and about without having to worry about getting home again!”
