What People Are Saying About Us

The wonderful Dan took my Aunty, my pooch, and myself for an amazing ride in the sun a few months ago. The sun was shining, we were smiling. Our rider, Dan, was chirping and we loved every minute of our ride with Motion By The Ocean. Thank you for an unforgettable day.

My Mum had the best morning! She felt like the Queen! Thanks to Denise for riding us to Trigg and back. My Mum has just recovered from clots in her leg and has been stuck at home for weeks. This ride has made her able to get out, have some fun again and feel a million dollars! Thank you.

This is a fantastic service for seniors and impaired people in our community a lot of fit people volunteer to pedal the trishaws along the coast. This means that many people who would normally be housebound or held in a nursing home etc can get out and enjoy the excellent views of our wonderful coastline. In my book they are all HEROES.

We love our bike rides by our beautiful coast . The bikes are wonderful, allowing you to feel the wind in your hair and say Hi to passing people. Everyone is so friendly. We stop and enjoy the ocean and even get treated to a cup of coffee from White Salt or Canteen in Trigg! it is such a fabulous initiative… a simple idea that spreads so much happiness. This service is for anyone who can’t ride a bike themselves and it’s FREE! We can’t recommend it enough!

Thank you to everyone at Motion by the Ocean for a great day out! Everyone made the experience so easy and enjoyable and our clients had the best time and we can’t wait to come back and enjoy our next trishaw ride.

Echo Community Services

Such a wonderful initiative and a fantastic experience for older people, or those with disabilities. My parents had a fabulous time. I think they loved talking to the kind and interesting volunteer pilot, as much as feeling the wind in their hair.

I’ve always loved the ocean, but now I live in Bentley and don’t get to see the water that much. My last swim before I went to the nursing home was at Port Beach. The waves were big that day; but I thought, if I can just get past the breakers, I’ll be ok. Instead, I got dumped and lost my dentures. Seeing the ocean here today reminded me of that day. I smile thinking of the person who may have come across my teeth bobbing away in the waves. These trishaw rides are the best thing the home does (for us).

Ewart — Juniper Bentley

“I would spend a week of every school holidays at my Nonna’s after her husband of 55 years (Nonno) passed away. Even at age 12 I seemed to comprehend the loneliness that can come with loss.

So, along with morning stretches, hours in the veggie garden, cooking, playing cards, and walking to Karrinyup shops every afternoon, Nonna would drive us in her lime green Torana to the beach to meet other family members for a picnic.

I can’t recall the last time we were able to sit and watch the ocean together so today was pretty special, filled with lots of stories (many that we heard more than once)

Thank you Cycling Without Age Sorrento for the ultimate JOY-ride! Denise you’re an absolute legend.”

Leanne Spano — passenger

“Oh, that was fun. I am windblown! When am I allowed to go out again?”

Mary — Parkside Opal, Carine

During her ride, Edith mentioned, “I was last at the beach when my granddaughter got married. I remember as it had been such a long time since I had stood on the beach.”

Edith — Karrinyup

“My husband used to pick me up on our tandem (bike) after I finished work before we had children. In the 60’s we bought a car. This is the first time I have been on a bike since!”

Elsie — Bentley

“My daughter reminded me this is the beach where my husband’s ashes were scattered. It was a long time ago now though.” 

Florence — Carine

“These food hampers are my lifeline. Knowing this hamper is coming, allows me to budget for incoming bills. I am so grateful!”

Jane — Moving Food volunteer

“Thank you for riding mum on your trishaw (for the MS Coastal Ride). Without this service, we wouldn’t be able to ride together as a complete family.”
