A smoothie bike is helping communities get together courtesy of Bromford and other partners including Northfield Eco Centre who run Cycle South Brum*, to promote healthy living ‘in tandem’ with cycling at summer events.
Fox Hollow residents got involved in Northfield Carnival last week where the bike made an appearance and the pedals will be in action again this Saturday at the resident’s annual fun day in Stockfield, Acocks Green between 11am and 4pm.
Sue Allen, acting head of neighbourhoods for Bromford said: “The Bromford housing team is donating hours to volunteer and the smoothie bike is a great attention grabber which brings people out as they are intrigued by it. Children and adults alike love it and the more active they get, the more smoothies they make!”
Phil Beardmore, co-ordinator of Cycle South Brum project said: “We are delighted to be involved and promote the benefits of cycling and raise awareness of the risks of a sedentary lifestyle. The smoothie bike can help get people cycling regardless of age and ability.”
*Cycle South Brum offers free bike hire, training and bike rides.
