Improving the Health and Wellbeing of an Urban Aboriginal Men's Group through a Cycling Promotion Program

Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal
Volume 33 Issue 4 (July/Aug 2009)

Abstract: Cycling has many recognised health and environmental benefits. An area in south-western Sydney with a low rate of cycling in the male population was identified. A targeted pilot program was developed to raise cycling awareness and participation rates, particularly among Indigenous males, to help address health and social issues in the community. An evaluation of the intervention found good attendance at cycling-related workshops and courses and substantially increased rates of cycling participation.
