Green Acres purchased some tandem electric assisted bikes (tricycles actually) and are looking for volunteers interested in peddling our residents around. This would be weather dependent and involves all the Lethbridge lodges.

There is one bike shared at Blue Sky Lodge and Golden Acres Lodge on the 16 Ave N, one bike shared at Black Rock Terrace and Pemmican Lodge on 5 Ave S, and one bike shared between Garden View Lodge, Heritage Lodge (both downtown) and Alberta Rose Lodge on 32 St S (by Rona).

Volunteers could volunteer at a lodge in their neighbourhood or at multiple lodges across the city. We really don’t know at this time if there will be specific routes to follow.

Helmet is provided, but if the volunteer has their own helmet, they can use it.

A bit of training will be required as there are settings controlled by the driver of the bike for the resident side as the residents can peddle at their own space to exercise their legs (this setting is not helping to propel the bike), peddle and provide assistance to keep the bike moving, or not peddle at all. The driver’s side also controls how much or how little peddling the driver wants to do (how much electronic assist they want) and the braking.

The main point of these e-bikes is to get the residents out for some fresh air, get a little exercise if they choose, and most importantly, to enjoy conversation or reminiscing with the driver of the bike so the resident gets both physical and mental stimulation.
