If you’ve ever wondered just how much the Healthy Communities Initiative is changing lives, then you need to watch the video below from Auburn City Council.
Every Wednesday at the Auburn Centre for Community, free cycling classes are run by AustCycle Provider Ian Watson Ride School.
The classes are open for anyone to attend and are designed for those who have never ridden a bike before or who simply want to improve their riding skills so that they can use a bike as a form of active transport.
Over consecutive weeks participants gain the skills and confidence to improve their bike handling skills, helping them to change their lives for the better.
Brooke Endycott, manager of community development at the Auburn Centre, said that there are a number of programs running for local residents and that a lot of people have come on board that have never ridden a bike before but are now learning how to ride.
“I know some of the staff have told me a story about a 90-year-old man that learnt to ride a bike for the first time and has now been riding and is actively involved in the program”.
