With NSW Bike Week just around the corner, Central Coast Local Health District is encouraging Coasties to try cycling for health and happiness.
NSW Bike Week will run from Saturday 21 September to Sunday 29 September 2019.
Bike Week aims to raise the profile of cycling as a healthier, happier, easier, cheaper and greener way to get around for short trips.
NSW Bike Week provides an opportunity for the Central Coast community to participate in organised bicycle events in a safe and supported environment.
CCLHD Health Promotion Officer Nigel Tebb encouraged Coasties to get on their bikes and join in the fun this Bike Week.
“The physical and mental health benefits to be gained from riding a bike, even for short trips where possible to work or the shops, are overwhelmingly positive,” he said.
“Riding for just a few minutes here and there, a few times a week can be all it takes to maintain and improve your health.
“And if that’s not enough of a reason to ride, the convenience you’ll experience, the money you’ll save and the wonderful people you’ll meet will really make you smile.”
