Motion by the Ocean Inc supports Western Australia’s founding chapter of Cycling Without Age in Sorrento.
Our daily rides commence from Sorrento SLSC at 10am daily, including twilight rides (wind dependent). Bookings essential.
From summer 2022, community rides with all three trishaws will commence from the Sorrento foreshore.
Locals are encouraged to turn up and have a ride. Follow our Facebook page – Motion By The Ocean to stay informed.
Rides are free for passengers, facilitated by a large committed group of local volunteers.

Now offering Trishaw rides from Mullaloo Foreshore
Moving people is where it all began! Motion by the Ocean Inc. supports Western Australia’s founding free trishaw service, Cycling Without Age Sorrento.
In 2017 we started offering trishaw rides to senior and less mobile members of our community, through the Cycling Without Age movement. Our program has gone from strength to strength.
Our rides leave every morning from Sorrento Life Saving Club, including twilight rides in the summer. We take people on a journey along our beautiful coastline whilst sharing a story or two along the way.
The trishaw rides are all about getting our passengers outside, into the elements. It’s about companionship, kindness and strengthening intergenerational relationships.
As a collective, we have completed more than 37,000 passenger-kilometres. That’s more than Perth to Lisbon, Portugal – and RETURN!
To better meet the demand for our services, we now offer rides from Mullaloo Surf Life Saving Club every Tuesday. We take in the ocean view from the foreshore as well as riding through the coastal bushland to the south.
We offer our services to aged care facilities, seniors living independently in their own homes and disability services. We also provide rides for events such as the MSWA Coastal Ride, the Duncraig Lions Australia Day event and local community events.
Even though Motion by the Ocean Inc. has grown into a much broader community program, the free trishaw rides remain at the heart of what we do. By encouraging people to ride with us, we can help make certain our passengers feel heard, remaining an important part of the northern coastal community they helped build.
