Hop on your bike for health

DON your lycra one-piece, or perhaps shorts and a singlet for the more conservative, but hop behind the handlebars because this week is Bike Week.

Across Queensland, cyclists will be hooning around on two wheels to promote the benefits of bike riding.

Co-owner of Redback Cycles on King St, Judy Lucas, encouraged all to give cycling a go.

She runs a 20km social cycle on Saturday mornings.

"I like the socialising side and anyone wanting to come along, they can," Mrs Lucas said.

The ride is free and you can hire bikes from Redback Cycles if you don't have one of your own.
