Fight the Christmas flab!

Did you overindulge this Christmas?

Are you thinking of a way to shed those festive pounds?

Lancaster City Council’s Cycling Demonstration Town (CDT) team might have the answer, with their Healthy Wheels Cycling and Training sessions, so if beating the bulge is your New Year’s resolution or you just fancy a leisurely ride why not pop along to Salt Ayre every Saturday morning from 17th January 2009.

The free sessions start at 11.00am and last for an hour and a half offering you a great opportunity to get fit, meet new people and explore the local area.

Cyclists should bring their own bikes although there is the opportunity to hire one from Salt Ayre. Hire bikes need to be booked in advance from the council’s CDT team.

Coun Eileen Blamire, cabinet member with responsibility for cycling said: “This is a perfect way to get fit and stay healthy at your own pace, alongside like-minded people.”

The sessions are open to all abilities, however, they aren’t suitable for complete beginners.

There’s no need to book - just turn up.
