The Duet Bike program keeps its wheels in motion with another media spotlight.

September 11, 2018

Our thanks to CKNW’s ‘Steele of Approval’, which aired a profile about Yaletown House’s Duet Bike Program. Our best Duet “spokes”person, Volunteer Glen Paul, was featured on Lynda Steele’s 980 radio broadcast on Monday, September 10th. The Duet bike has garnered a lot of media attention when it launched nine years ago with Vancouver Mayor Greggor Robertson at the wheel. Since then, radio, newspapers and magazines have collectively advanced the community’s interest of this amazing program. The Duet Bike is an innovative mode of transportation to get seniors and those with limited mobility out for a bike ride. The passenger sits in a bucket like seat in the front with the volunteer rider operating the bike controls from behind. Yaletown House is fortunate to have several weekly Duet Bike volunteer riders who say they enjoy the ride as much as the residents do. Thank you Lynda Steele and CKNW radio for keeping our wheels in motion!
