Sport in Mind Group Cycle

11 May 2017

Sport in Mind Social cycle

During Mental Health Awareness week in May we launched a fun, group cycle session from Rivermead Leisure Centre for people supported by local charity Sport in Mind. Some brought their own cycles and some used ReadyBikes

This has proved really popular and now runs weekly every Thurs from 1-3pm

Anyone is welcome to come along and join one of our leisurely rides - along the Thames, exploring the cycle paths around Reading, or even touring out to Mapledurham or Sonning!

We always make time for a drink and cake stop!

Sport in Mind  is an independent Berkshire mental health sports charity founded in 2011. Its aim is to use sport and physical activity to help aid the recovery of people experiencing a wide range of mental health problems by promoting mental wellbeing, improving physical health and combating social isolation.

The charity provides a weekly timetable of supported sport and physical activity sessions in Berkshire for people experiencing mental health problems in the community and also those receiving inpatient care at Prospect Park Hospital.
