The event featured a special moment from Cycle Without Age who unveiled the centre’s new Trishaw. Only six facilities in Eastern Ontario have a Trishaw. The vehicle allows someone to take two riders at a time and pedal around the Care Centre grounds giving residents an adventure in the fresh air.

The Trishaw was purchased with a $10,000 donation from members of Shroomfest.

Cycle Without Age was invented in Copenhagen and has spread to 42 countries.
