Local Ladies Get Pedalling with Beat the Street

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council has teamed up with Beat the Street to launch a new programme to help support local women to start cycling.

Back on Your Bike is a free 5-week initiative, that aims to support women who are new or returning to cycling, tailored for those who maybe haven’t been on a bike in a number of years, and is delivered through Sport Northern Ireland’s National Lottery funded Every Body Active 2020 programme. The initiative follows the Beat the Street game which transformed parts of Northern Ireland into a giant game last Autumn.

The seven-week game saw nearly 34,000 people get moving across their local area and it set to return again this September. The initiative was funded by The National Charity Partnership – a partnership between Diabetes UK, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and Tesco who are working together to help millions of people to improve their health through programmes such as Beat the Street. To find out more about the programme or to join contact dianne.whyte@intelligenthealth.co.uk or Tel: 07880 492799.

Back Row L-R Participants Laura Smith, Mable Scullion, Alison Bird, Jade Aughey, Emma McNeill with Dawn Millar Women & Girls Activity Leader, Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council. Front row L-R Dianne Whyte, Engagement Manager Beat the Street and Ann Broome, Tesco Community Champion Lisburn Store.
