Pedal Ready

Project Title: Healthy Heart Cycle
Award: £5,400

 

Pedal Ready aims to get more people cycling more safely, more often and has introduced heart health messages into the cycling sessions delivered by a retired public health specialist in physical activity as part of a Healthy Heart Cycle project. The project will offer free Cycle for Health sessions in Endcliffe Park, Sheffield, for adults with risk factors for heart disease such as high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, obesity, or physical inactivity. Participants will be referred from local doctors surgeries and from a local health and well-being initiative called Shipshape. Some of these adults have never learned to ride a bike and some just need a little confidence boost to help them along their way towards a healthier, happier, longer life.
