Older cyclist Andrew Lis said, "I feel 10 years younger and look forward to my next ride after the stresses of the working day. You do need to get streetwise, however, and that's when a cycling buddy can be a great help."

Founded by cycling instructor Gwen Cook, Agewell on Wheels started in summer 2008 in Hammersmith & Fulham with the help of an LCC-administered grant from the Community Cycling Fund for London.
