Bik­ing for good health

South Waikato News - - SPORT - By GILLY ALEXAN­DER

It has been great see­ing peo­ple out and about on their bikes tak­ing part in Bike­wise Month.

Thank you to all the busi­nesses who took part in ‘‘Ride to Work Week’’. There is still time to get out and about on your bike this week. Feel free to con­tinue with the rid­ing. It is a great way to get around and good for your health.

We have some cy­cling brochures avail­able to any­one in­ter­ested in bik­ing. They in­clude safety tips, club de­tails and rides in the area and will be avail­able at the in­for­ma­tion cen­tres, coun­cil of­fices and our of­fice from next week.

A re­minder that our In­tro­duc­tion to Moun­tain Bik­ing classes have had to be can­celled due to the clo­sure of Cougar Park for rid­ing. How­ever, we are still do­ing a ride from Ara­puni on Tues­day night – 6pm from Rhubarb Cafe.

The fo­rum is de­signed to un­cover the needs of sport­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions and to pri­ori­tise what should be done to as­sist sport in the fu­ture.
