That’s what’s we’re about: “We’re here to fight for old people’s right to wind in their hair.” When we grow old, we lose the witnesses to our stories and to our lives.Imagine not having anybody around who experienced what you experienced.This is Thorkild, a 97 year-old gentleman and nursing home resident.
It also happens to be the happiest means of transport.I have heard countless stories of how they reluctantly have had to give up cycling because they became afraid of crashing or being hit by a car door.All this made me think: The old man, Thorkild, he must miss cycling too – and then: How can I get him back on a bicycle?In the early years after the war, the bicycle provided cheap, easy and efficient transport.In the 50’s and 60’s the bicycle was slowly but surely replaced by cars, but in a few cities, such as Copenhagen, the bicycle managed to pick up again in the late 70’s and early 80’s and today continues to be the most important means of transport.

That was when I learned that he had been a royal guard for 18 months back in 1938, 76 years ago.It gave THEM a new-found mobility and it gave ME an amazing new insight into my city and lots of very unlikely friendships. He had also owned a lingerie shop for 25 years in the heart of Copenhagen and proceeded to explain how to assess a woman’s bra size. I decided that all these adventures were all too good not to involve other people in.It was one of those ideas that just wouldn’t go away. So, one fine August morning I showed up unannounced at the nursing home equipped with a rented rickshaw.Imagine not having anybody to laugh or to cry with.
