Free bikes for Illawarra teens in health initiative

At the Happiness Cycle event at Beaton Park's Snakepit this Thursday, Illawarra kids will be taught how to assemble a BMX, fixed gear or mountain bike on the day, then get to ride it home. 

The program is about getting kids into healthy living patterns, with a mobile app for users to track their progress and set goals.

Teens can sign up to receive a bike at happinesscycle.com.au.
