People For Bikes, Austin, TX

I had an opportunity through my cycling colleague and old friend, Christopher Stanton, to take some photos of an amazing senior-focused cycling program that is taking place on the Eastside of Austin. The program consists of partnering seniors with an adult-trike and giving each rider all the tools they need to succeed as an independent bike-riding member of the community.  The look of joy on their faces is something I will never forget-some of the cyclists had never ridden a bike in their life!

I hope other communities throughout the United States and beyond will adopt programs such as this one-it’s great to make a difference if even for a small group of individuals. It’s even more inspiring when we empower members of our communities that otherwise wouldn’t be able to be active voices in our neighborhoods!
