Mount Vernon Cycling Club Cycle Leaders 

We now have 7 qualified Cycle Leaders Thanks to Cycling Scotland Trainer Cliff who passed on lots of advice and useful tips to our Cycle leaders on Saturday the 3rd of July 2021.

A special thanks to Active Glasgow East sports Hub our partners Glasgow Life who helped fund this project and have continued to support us through our early stages of setting up our Cycling Club. 

Mount Vernon Community Hall promoting Active Travel for everyday travel,  to help reduce the effects of  Climate Change, as well as the Health Benefits of regular cycling. 

Cycling is mainly an aerobic activity, which means that your heart, blood vessels and lungs all get a workout. You will breathe deeper, perspire and experience increased body temperature, which will improve your overall fitness level.

The health benefits of regular cycling include:

  • increased cardiovascular fitness

  • increased muscle strength and flexibility

  • improved joint mobility

  • decreased stress levels

  • improved posture and coordination

  • strengthened bones

  • decreased body fat levels

  • prevention or management of disease

  • reduced anxiety and depression.

 

Mount Vernon Cycling free sessions take place on a Friday between 10 and 12pm please send us and email : mvcycling@outlook.com if you would like to join us
