Volunteering Your Time as a Pilot for Cycling Without Age

We’re a little biased, but we can’t imagine many other activities as rewarding as taking a passenger out for a ride in a trishaw.

Our e-bike trishaws are easy to drive and we’ll train you after you contact us by phone or email.  After being trained, you will use our website to indicate the date and times you’re willing to pilot.  Once a passenger books a ride, you’ll get an email with the details and you take it from there.

As either a pilot or passenger, you can expect your time riding together sightseeing or getting groceries to be a highlight of your day because there’s a certain magic that bicycling and friendship bring about.  It’s almost a guarantee that the end of the ride will find you both smiling from ear to ear.

Where are we Providing Rides?

Our current 2024 plan is to provide rides in four different Hub Neighborhoods:

  1. Minneapolis Northside Neighborhood
  2. Minneapolis Loring Park Neighborhood
  3. Minneapolis Seward/Longfellow Neighborhood
  4. St Paul Highland Park Neighborhood

We have two trishaws and we plan to station one or both at these neighborhood hubs on different days of the week.  As a pilot, you will find the trishaw at that hub’s parking spot, ready to go for your ride.

Pilots Drive Our Program

The first step in making a ride happen is you committing to volunteer at a particular date and time.  That puts you in the driver’s seat as far as when you want to volunteer and hopefully makes it convenient to participate in this fun and valuable program.

When you sign up, you will let us know what Neighborhood Hubs you are able to volunteer for.  Once we train you in, you will use our Ride Reservation Application to commit to specific upcoming dates and times.  When a passenger selects that date and time, you will get an email with complete details about the booked ride.

You and your passenger will take it from there.  There’s a wide range of ways to structure the ride, but for most pilots and passengers, simply sharing the joy of bicycling and friendship is a can’t-lose proposition.  You may choose to ride with the same passenger regularly, every week or every other week, or you may volunteer when you can at different Neighborhood Hubs.  Either way, we believe you will find this a rewarding and fun way to volunteer your time and serve our deserving passenger communities.
