Cycling is a key leisure activity at the Children and Adolescents’ Home in Geesdorf, Germany, which provides a home for nine boys and girls between the ages of three and sixteen who, for different reasons, are unable to live with their parents. The social workers at the home make sure to run regular cycling trips and each child has their own bike. The only problem is that the youngest children can’t yet ride them!
To make sure everyone is included in the trips, Mix for Kids donated an e-bike and bicycle trailer to the home. The trailer can hold up to two children, while the bike’s engine means one social worker can take the weight of the trailer without falling behind from the group. Specialist cycling store Zweirad Weissenseel from Volkach helped with the purchase of the trailer, offering a discount and free children’s helmet.
