Please note that the Central Coast Cycling Challenge project page is now archived as a reference and is not being kept up to date.


The Central Coast Health Promotion Service is encouraging all Central Coast adults to get back on their bike and take on the Central Coast Community Cycling Challenge.

The Community Cycling Challenge is a free, easy and fun way for people to discover some of the many great 'cycling things to do' on the Central Coast. A bonus of the Challenge is that people might just discover that cycling can lead them on a path to a healthier lifestyle.

Cycling is quite simply the healthier, easier, cheaper & greener way to go! Whether as a way of getting around for short trips in your local community or purely for leisure, cycling is the smart and healthy choice.

So, are you over 18 and haven't been on a bike for a while?

If so, 'get back on your bike!' and take on the 'Central Coast Community Cycling Challenge'.

The Coast has loads of great ways for you to 'get back on your bike'. Check out the 'Cycling Challenge' checklist for ideas … then just try some!

Tick off at least two items on the Challenge Checklist before the end of October 2012 to go in the draw to win one of one hundred cycling prize packs. See the Checklist for details.

Download a full colour or print friendly checklist or call the Central Coast Health Promotion Unit on 43494800 to order a copy today.

Come on Coasties … 'Get back on your bike!'

Measure Up Campaign
(National)

Raising Awareness of Hazardous Waist

 

Irrespective of your height or build, if your waistline is getting bigger it could mean you are at increased risk of developing a chronic disease such as some cancers, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Unhealthy eating and not enough physical activity can be important contributors to an increasing waistline.


The Measure Up campaign is part of the Australian Better Health Initiative (ABHI), a national program, supported by the Australian and state and territory governments, which aims to reduce the risk factors for chronic disease. A variety of resources including an information booklet and tape measure can be downloaded or ordered  through the

Measure Up website.
