Cycling as Rehabilitation

I've recently been covering a really interesting story on how riding a bike can improve your health.

People who have been sectioned under the mental health act are using cycling to help improve their symptoms.

The Bike Club is made up of patients at the Northern General secure unit and staff who work with them.

They meet at Hillsborough Park for a joint bike ride every week, all year round. I've been along to a session.

  1. Physical exercise is often wonderful for mental health - I have experienced this myself. The fact that this exercise is in a group will also be very beneficial, as all those members of the Bike Club stated. Great that this kind of activity gets reported.
