Graeme?s pushing pedal power
YOU'RE never too old, or too young, to get back on a bicycle. Just ask Graeme Russell who yesterday took part in National Ride to Work Day. Joining Mr Russell were his two sons, Brock, 5, and Daniel, 3. Understanding that it may have been too much to ask Daniel to pedal himself around town, Mr Russell solved any problems by taking to the streets with a bicycle built for two. So with Daniel strapped in alongside him, and Brock keeping pace on his own bike, the family headed off to the Coffs Harbour Memorial Swimming Pool, where Coffs Coast residents were meeting up for a free early morning breakfast. If the car seat was too appealing to pass up yesterday there is still four days left in Bike Week. That means there is still time to brush-off the cobwebs on your bike and gain a new lease on life and improve your health. If cycling is something you left back in your youth, along with the barbies and toy cars, the Coffs Coast has a number of shops and organisations that can fill you in on the new developments. Along with better health, there are many benefits to riding a bike, such as saving money on petrol and helping clean-up the envi- ronment.
