No age barriers to Cycling in Copenhagen

It’s a blustery spring day in Copenhagen and Birthle, an elegant older woman, is waiting impatiently with her coat on to go for a bike ride.

Birthle is 99 years old and though she looks years younger, she is not planning to cycle herself. Instead she is waiting in her care home’s lobby for the arrival of her pilot, a cheery young man called Theis.

He is a volunteer with “Cycling Without Age”, a programme that began life here four years ago and has since taken the world by storm.
