Spreading the word to celebrate the achievements

We are adamant to celebrate all of the wonderful senior cyclists across the nations!

The Road Worlds for Seniors has experienced a high and increasing coverage in media, with hundreds of inspiring stories published so far – among these stories in The Guardian, The Times, Channel 4 News, ITV News, and others both with national and international outreach. 

This has resulted in hundreds of enquiries reaching out to learn more about how they can participate in the event and offer Motiview to their residents and loved ones. 

We want to give more seniors the ability to partake – helping them break out of loneliness and social isolation, to improve their physical health and to have fun while doing it.
