Cycle & Stride Project: Cycling on 13-07-2024

10 students followed their trainers on a cycling route that included the road, Ashton Canal including Ancoats-Islington-Miles Platting branch, then onto Clayton Vale Bike Trail.

On this sunny day, we cycled along beautiful rivers and canals, enjoying nature’s beauty and fresh air. It made everyone feel free and relaxed. Although there was a light drizzle and a few minor incidents along the way, it didn’t make the ride any less fun. The group thoroughly enjoyed the day! Chinese Health Information Centre (CHIC).

With the sunny and warm weather, the Chinese Health Information Centre (CHIC) has organized two large-scale health walks, attracting older people from across Manchester.

The walk to Salford Quays attracted 56 participants, while the walk along the local canal paths in Ancoats and Islington attracted 50 participants. The group continues to grow, and beyond enjoying the walking, exploring nature, and the fresh air, participants find joy in being socially connected.

Health Walk on 12-07-2024 to Ashton Canal via Ancoats- Islington . 50 older people took part in the 1 hour stride with joy. Afterward they went to Chinatownn for a Dim Sum lunch and social gathering, conversing in their own language freely

They have the opportunity to meet people from the same cultural background and, most importantly, can converse in their own language.

The Cycle & Stride Project has given CHIC the opportunity to provide such age-friendly activities, allowing them to continue their beneficial work. This initiative helps a large number of older Chinese people in the Manchester area to stay active, mentally sharp, and socially connected.
