Get on your bike! World Bicycle Day

Get on your bike! World Bicycle Day

Date
Wed 3 Jun 2020

Regular physical activity of moderate intensity – such as walking, cycling, or doing sports – has significant benefits for health.

The United Nations General Assembly declared 3 June World Bicycle Day to acknowledge the uniqueness, longevity and versatility of the bicycle, which has been in use for two centuries. Two centuries! As a simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transportation, the bicycle fosters environmental stewardship and health.

Exercise has many benefits, not only for your physical health but also your mental health.

Did you know exercise: 

  • Pumps blood to the brain, which can help you to think more clearly?
  • Increases the size of the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory?
  • Protects your brain against injury and disease? It does this by increasing the connections between the nerve cells in the brain

So you want to exercise but not sure how to start? Lacking motivation to "just do it"?

Call us on 1800 752 235; email navigation@brisbanenorthphn.org.au or send us a message here.

We have lots of support options to help you get on your bike!
