Get On Yer Bike

Get On Yer Bike

Staff and visitors to Clackmannanshire Community Healthcare Centre were urged to get on their bikes recently as part of Cycle Week. The programme of cycling activities was funded by Smarter Choices, Smarter Places, and arranged in partnership with Clackmannanshire Council, Stirling Cycle Hub, Healthy Working Lives and Recyke-a- bike. Included were free health checks for tired bikes and electric bikes for people to try out. One man was also helped to get back into the saddle after a long illness.

Fruit and breakfast pots were given to everyone who made the effort to cycle or walk that week and, whilst the organisers said they appreciated that cycling is not a viable option for everyone, it does provide physical and mental health benefits and is less stressful than being stuck in traffic or searching endlessly for a car parking space!
