Obesity is a growing problem - safe cycling can help

Every day we read more about the growing problem of obesity in Ireland, especially among children. Cycling is a fun way to avoid this problem - but it must be safe. Many parents are understandably afraid to let their children cycle for fear of injury or death on our narrow congested roads.

Mark Cagney predicts the future...

I predict that we will be walking and cycling a lot more in the future. This increase in exercise will lead to a dramatic decrease in obesity problems. Cleaner air, thanks to less pollution from cars, will also make us healthier By Mark Cagney, Ireland AM

Please e-mail if your group is interested in 'joining up'.
