A seniors home in Orléans has a new bike that will give residents the chance to enjoy the scenic trails along the Ottawa River, while someone else does the work.

At the core of Bruyère Continuing Care’s “Cycling Without Age” program is a new pedicab-type trike with a relaxing two-person seat at the front, powered by a volunteer who pedals and steers the bike from a seat behind them.
