Get off the farm and on your bike

Get off the farm and on your bike

Try your hand at cycling, running or walking this month.

The Farmstrong Fit4Farming Cycle Tour is stepping up a gear this month. During the 15 day, 1400km tour from Ngatea to Bluff the peloton of 20 cyclists will stop at five locations and host an Event Day.

At each Event Day, farmers, growers and anyone connected with the primary sector are invited to come along and take part in a fun exercise activity such as a bike ride, a run or walk.

The aim of the Cycle Tour is to promote the benefit exercise can have on farmers’ overall health and wellbeing and how this supports their work on-farm.
