Annual Cycling Event participation

Well done to everyone that participated in our Annual Cycling Event, 484.89 km were logged by the 41 recorded participants (more than last year).  Cycling is an excellent way of keeping fit and contributes immensely towards a strong and healthy mind. Cycling also supports a “greener environment” so well done and thank you all participants for giving it a go.  Those that have won in the prize draw have been contacted and we hope that you continue to carry on cycling wherever possible.

The benefits of cycling include:  

•             Staying healthy – can reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease

•             Physical health – burns more fat than jogging and is a great way to tone your legs

•             Boosts endorphins – helps to keep the mind heathy and reduces stress, anxiety, and depression

•             It’s green – contribute to a reduction in air pollution – every 1.3km saves the emission of 1 gram of carbon from a vehicle
