We have an electric-assist 'trioBike taxi' (it's a tri-shaw as ilustrated).
We are always looking for pilots (details below).
Ride the ‘a couch on wheels’ taking the residents out and about as illustrated in this video: :
This is the third tri-shaw for Cycling Without Age in Canberra – the other two are at Kangara Waters residential aged care facility in Belconnen.
Pilots ride the tri-shaw and take residents out and about, to the shops, to the lake or wherever people want to go.
If you can ride a bike and have a desire to help others, then becoming a pilot is a simple process). You won’t need much practise before you are on the road (or the bike path).
We will train you as a pilot to understand the tri-shaw operations and to allow you and residents to come together for fun rides. There are no commitments as to when you should be available – you decide when you can ride and then your services can be offered to residents. Or you can have regular times and/or passengers. It’s up to you and the residents. Download our pilot training document (PDF).
To be a pilot, we require you to register for Working With Vulnerable People (free of charge if registered as part of the Woden Rotary Club program). Register as: volunteer; general registration to work with children or adults OR conditional registration to work with adults only; and organisation/employer is the Rotary Club of Woden Inc.
We have insurance cover for the tri-shaw and your legal liability as a pilot – you are volunteering in an officially recognised Rotary activity.
If you would like to become a pilot, please contact us.
