#7daysofcycling: Improve your mental wellbeing


Did you know Cycling UK has lots of projects that help people discover the joys of cycling, at the same time improving their mental health? One great example is Cycle 4 Health, which offers free cycle training at the Fieldhead Mental Health Hospital in Wakefield.

Jacqueline Sharp, who works at the hospital, explains more: “Cycle training has become a popular part of patient’s recovery at the Fieldhead Mental Health Hospital. I ride alongside patients every week, getting back on my bike for the first time since I was a teenager! Cycle 4 Health has been an excellent opportunity for us to get out and experience healthy exercise in a social group, outdoors in natural surroundings. The opportunity of being out and active away from the ward and the hospital environment is a big benefit.” You can read more about this fantastic programme on Cycling UK’s website.
