Volunteer Pilots

Cycling Without Age Scotland are recruiting Volunteer Pilots to take the elderly and disabled for trips across Forth Valley. You will get full training, and will require PVG disclosure.

If you are interested in helping your community, please get in touch!

More information can be found on our Facebook page -

A Volunteer Trishaw Pilot is the cyclist who is responsible for all aspects of preparing for and conducting a ride, post-ride duties (e.g. required
records) and promoting awareness of, encouraging support for and maintaining the reputation of Cycling Without Age Scotland. The decision as to whether a Co-Pilot is required on the ride should be based on the route assessment.

The Pilot must complete the 5-stage training as detailed in the Trishaw and Pilot Handbook, which may be amended/updated from time to time and covers:

  1. Getting to know the Trishaw

  2. The Passenger’s Experience

  3. Trial Runs

  4. First Rides

  5. Conducting route and risk assessments followed by a final assessment.

Experience required

A Volunteer Trishaw Pilot must:
• Be aged 16 or over;
• Be responsible, patient and empathetic;
• Operate to the level trained and to high
standards and be a good time-keeper;
• Be reliable, enthusiastic and a team player;
• Be able to listen, communicate and relate to all
