La Laguna offers more than 60 guided and free routes on an adapted tricycle

The Council of La Laguna and Tenerife por la Bici have signed an agreement to launch an adapted tricycle service that will allow for more than 60 individual free and guided routes for the elderly and people with disabilities in the municipality.

The project, called Bike for Everyone, will run from this month until the end of December and will involve a municipal investment of almost €10,000. It will have the collaboration of a team of volunteers, who will receive specialized training, also in first aid and road safety, and who will be in charge not only of pedalling but adapting the routes to the demands of the users.

“With conversation, learning and sharing life experiences, they will help encourage these people to go out and socialize, thus intervening in one of the most pressing problems today, that of unwanted loneliness and its impact on health and individual well-being.
