HEALTH &

WELLBEING

Cyclist Training Ltd is inspired to increase the number of children and adults able to walk, scoot and cycle more often and more safely whilst also promoting the health benefits participation in active travel can easily bring.

Teaching children and adults to ride is a privilege and provides individuals with an opportunity to learn life long skills to be more active and healthy.

We appreciate that our team plays a key role in changing the lifestyles and perceptions of young people, individuals in the community and their rates of activity.

Just a 15-minute walk or cycle to and from school provides pupils with half of their recommended daily exercise which is why we value teaching early years children pedestrian safety and 7 year olds how to scoot carefully around their local community.

As 1 in 3 children will leave primary school overweight or obese it is crucial that together cycle training providers and local authorities work together to promote benefits and reduce barriers which still exist by providing a variety of bespoke activities or through Bikeability Plus funding where available.

We are proud that Cyclist Training Ltd is one of the most experienced cycle training providers of Bikeability. For 10 years we have delivered this Department for Transport scheme in six local authorities achieving unprecedented participation and long term, outstanding relationships with schools, children and families.

Preventing obesity and managing weight are complex problems with no easy answers. NICE clinical guidelines offer practical recommendations based on evidence including making activity part of family life; walking to school; cycling to shops.

CTL supports families, through their children's school sessions or direct support, to reduce sedentary lifestyles and increase activity so more young people benefit from long term physical good health and positive mental wellbeing.

Taking students on local bike rides for Staffordshire, Cheshire East and Stoke-on-Trent primary schools since 2010 has enabled many young people to gain more cycle confidence and for pupils to go onto commute to their secondary school.

Working in partnership with numerous leisure centres CTL provided a range of active holiday sessions in Cheshire East with Everybody Sports and Recreation, Staffordshire Moorlands, East Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent for children from 5 to 16 offering Learn to Ride Sessions, Family Rides, Scooterbility and Bikeability.

Evidence shows that there is a link between being physically active and good mental wellbeing. According to NHS research five areas help with mental wellbeing; good relationships; being active; new skills for confidence; giving; mindfulness.

 

Cyclist Training Ltd and Velo Runner increase individuals activity levels to enable children and adults to look after their physical and mental wellbeing.

 

What you do with your body can have a powerful effect on your mental wellbeing.

Mental wellbeing means feeling good – both about yourself and about the world around you. It means being able to get on with life in the way you and your family want.

 

Through cycling, walking, scooting, running and other forms of sustainable and active transport we promote and deliver activities for everyone to access, enjoy and make a part of your life.

 

Cycling and walking can help students, employees and all people with mild depression. Evidence shows that active travel will also help protect people against anxiety.

Physical activity is thought to cause chemical changes in the brain, which can help to positively change our mood.

 

Cycling and walking to school can help pupils to be more alert and better able to deal with anxiety, depression and stress which they encounter during academic peaks. Schools benefit from a positive effect on their engagement and academic performance.

 

Some scientists think that being active can improve well being because it brings about a sense of greater self-esteem, self-control and the ability to rise to a challenge.

 

Adults aged 19 and over should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity – such as fast walking or cycling every week.

 

How can we help you get more active:

We rely heavily on cars and public transport, because they make our lives so easy. But making active travel choices is an excellent way to fit activity into your day. It can take a little longer and you may not be able to do it for all your journeys, but you will be surprised where you can swap the car or public transport for two legs or two wheels.

 

Walking or cycling instead of using the car or taking public transport is good for your pocket, as well as the environment.
