CAMPAIGNERS for a scheme which will allow older people to experience the thrill of a cycle ride are holding an event so residents can see for themselves what the fuss is all about.

Cycling Without Age was set up to allow elderly people and care home residents to go out on 'trishaw' cycle rides.

A JustGiving campaign has been launched to bring the international initiative to Bridport. So far, the group behind the campaign has raised close to £300 of its £4,000 target.

The group behind the campaign is hosting an event in Bucky Doo Square on Saturday, June 12 so that residents can ask questions and learn more about the project. They will even be bringing along the trishaws from the Weymouth project so people can have a go themselves.
