During these difficult times, staying sane while in lockdown can be difficult. Why not take up cycling, and fundraise to support local carers?
If you’re a carer, cycling can also be a rewarding hobby to take up. Cycling can give you a short break outside of the house, and has many other health benefits. As a low impact activity, it won’t put pressure on joints and is a great cardiovascular workout as you build muscle and cycle more.
Cycling is a great way to get outside while still social distancing in line with the government’s restrictions. Even during this time details of local cycling groups can be found online, for anyone who wants to stay connected and make new friends through cycling, or you can look at wholly online communities like Zwift.
Everyone has been affected by Covid-19. But for people who are already struggling, things have become even harder. Many of our carers are at breaking point and they need us now more than ever.
Throughout June Trafford Carers Centre are running a fundraising challenge, Cycle for Carers, to raise awareness and fundraise for local carers. Find out more online or call 0161 8482400 (option 4) to take on the challenge!
