Guyra Shire Council recently came on board as an AustCycle Provider, running courses as part of the Healthy Highlander Initiative, and already they have been making a big difference.
David Harris, who is the current Australian Champion in the All Mountain Cup Series, is running the AustCycle classes in Guyra and they are open to adults of any skill level. Each week participants get to test their riding skills in a friendly group environment and bikes are supplied so that everyone can partake.
Healthy Highlander Coordinator Stephen Griffith said the program has been very successful so far, with the participants loving the AustCycle funded helmets that have been given out. The aim of the program is to encourage more people in the Guyra community to get physically active, so if you are looking to get back on a bike, contact Stephen on 0418 861 532.
