Event description

Description

Ride Side by Side (RSbS) is a new cycle taxi that's launching in the Spring. It's a service for older people that actively want to get somewhere — the hospital, to friends or around the local area.

The free service will be piloting in the Spring in Hackney.

You can book 1 x two hour slot where a cycling instructor can help you get to where you want to go and back again.

The cycle has storage space for shopping or to carry any walking aids.

We operate in a two mile area from Hackney Town Hall and are operating every Thursday from 23rd March.
