Why Become More Active 

An informative talk by Jessie Booth about some of the lesser known benefits of physical activity and exercise 

I bought a bike 5 years ago on the Cycle to Work Scheme in the hopes that I would get a few extra minutes in bed in the morning and not be late for work.  Turns out cycling was my new found love.  I thoroughly enjoy it.  After 2 years I decided I wanted to get a better bike.  I spoke to a family friend who was into sportives and told him I was thinking of upgrading and told him what I wanted.  I didn’t really know what I was looking for but he seemed to know what I wanted!! He rang me a few months later and said he found the perfect racer bike on DoneDeal and did I want to go ahead.  He described the bike as “beautiful” I thought to myself it was unusual to call a bike beautiful.  Turns out the bike is beautiful!!  I then decided to join a triathlon club but cycling is really my favourite part.  This year I have taken part in the Cycle Against Suicide and the Ring of Kerry.  I do still like my few extra minutes in bed which have are a few more now that I a bit faster on the bike!!
