I recently made a personal pledge to stop reading the news because I just don’t feel good when I’m feeding my brain a constant supply of negativity. It’s been nearly two months and I can already sense how much more uplifted, hopeful and positive I feel. My only source of news now is the Good News Network, which I access through an app on my phone. The stories that Good News Network reports on are amazing, and they remind me that there is so much good in the world. Today’s guest will do the same.
Pernille Bussone is the Global Community Captain for Cycling Without Age, a movement started in 2012 by Ole Kassow in Denmark. Ole wanted to help the elderly get back on their bicycles, but he had to find a solution to their limited mobility. The answer was a trishaw and he started offering free bike rides to the local nursing home residents. Cycling Without Age has now spread to all corners of Denmark, and since 2015, to another 41 countries around the world.
