Meet the 101 year old Snail Seeker!
Volunteer cycle pilots from Cycling Without Age Brighton have been helping local care home residents to meet our Snails!
Cycling Without Age Brighton takes residents of care homes on slow cycle rides around the city. As a result, they’re helping elderly folk in our community to get out in the fresh air.
Recently the charity has been sharing the Snailway adventures of their riders on social media.
We really loved hearing about rider Denise. Because at 89 years old, Denise really seemed to have the #BeMoreSnail spirit. She was singing “Enjoy yourself (it’s later than you think)” as she was cycled along! We think Denise knows how to slow down and value the special moments in every day.
Elly, captain of Cycling Without Age Brighton, told us how Snailspace is helping to bring the community together:
‘It’s lovely to ride out with local elders to adventure by bike. The Snails add lots to talk about and often provide more opportunities for our volunteer cycle pilots and elder riders to chat with people gathering at each Snail! We love the #BeMoreSnail message as we’re fans of slow cycling and sharing stories between those onboard as well as passers-by.’
Cycling Without Age Brighton also introduced us to Marjorie, who is 101 years old. Everyone at Snailspace HQ agrees Marjorie must win the prize for being the oldest Snail Seeker on the Snailway!
