Volunteers are taking seniors out on rickshaw rides to get them into nature

By

As we age, it's harder and harder to get outside. And that's a shame since getting out into nature has been linked to a significant increase in people’s health and happiness. 

On top of that, one in three seniors in the United States reports being lonely. Loneliness has been found to increase the risks of heart attacks, strokes, depression, anxiety, and early death. 

The benefits of getting out into nature and having someone to talk to can be numerous for the elderly. That's why Ole Kassow from Denmark decided to start the Cycling Without Age project back in 2012. 

Kassow started taking some elderly members of his local community on rides in a rickshaw and quickly saw the benefits.
