Cycling Without Age Scotland (CWAS) Fortrose and Rosemarkie Chapter is a community based venture which enables those with limited mobility in our community to get out into the locality on mobility trikes.
A group of enthusiasts with a vision to roll out this project within the community have been working over the winter to raise people’s awareness of the possibilities that having a mobility trike in Fortrose and Rosemarkie will give to our elderly and limited mobility members of the community.
You may have seen us taking in the sights at Chanonry Point or along Rosemarkie beach or around the Cathedral and wondered how to get involved. The good news is everyone can get involved, we all know people who would benefit by either becoming the pilot (cyclist) or the passenger, we have elderly friends and neighbours, we have youngsters with restricted mobility, we have people who don’t manage to leave their homes for many reasons but this trike can get people outdoors and engaging with our wonderful environment again.
What can you do?
If you wish to become a cycle pilot we can make that happen.
If you are in a bubble with elderly or limited mobility relatives you can become a cycle pilot and take them out on the trike.
We are constrained by Covid-19 regulations at this moment in time which is why we can roll out our initial programme to only those that are in a bubble together.
We have become one of CWAS sixty chapters in Scotland you will find their website at http://cyclingwithoutage.scot. They have a growing network of community trike groups around Scotland and are part of a global network of community mobility projects.

On 19-20th June 2021 Alan McCaffrey will attempt an epic 24 hour ride to raise funds to purchase a Rikshaw for Cycling Without Age Scotland’s “Fortrose and Rosemarkie Chapter”.
During the attempt Alan hopes to ascend over 8849 metres turning Black Isles Mount High into Mount Everest for the day. Alan is keen to raise support and awareness for the group as they seek to establish themselves in Fortrose and Rosemarkie for the benefit of people with restricted mobility in the area.
Please help Alan in his attempt by making a donation using the Donate button below.
