Ride Therapy

THERAPY IN ACTION (this 2-minute clip) was shot in North Carolina in 2008. College students and their professor were researching isolation and depression in assisted living facilities. For a month or so they ran this wonderful therapeutic biking program. What fun! …… Fast forward to the Summer of 2014, when our founder, Doug Malcolm, RN, saw a nursing home ride program on Cape Cod. His immediate thought, We have plenty of folks of all ages in Portland living with all kinds of disabilities … many would love to go for a ride. Portland Wheelers began to take shape that fall.
