Rutland Cycling Partnered with Flora Pro-Activ to reduce Cholesterol in Rutland Residents

Rutland residents have recently been recruited into a special challenge in a bid to reduce their cholesterol in just three weeks. Rutland Cycling is proud to be partnered with Flora and Uppingham School for this healthy lifestyle campaign by offering bike rides at Rutland Water.

A high Cholesterol level can contribute to heart disease and the likelihood of strokes in later life as well as contributing to a number of other health problems.

With over 100 residents enrolled in the campaign It Takes Rutland will run for three weeks from the 11th January.

With weekly community breakfast meets, as well as a full range of activities on offer from Uppingham School Fitness Centre, Rutland Cycling have organised four rides as part of this campaign.

Meeting at Whitwell on the 18th and 26th January, the rides will give the opportunity for the participants to get out and about on bikes and meet the other riders. It is the first initiative of its kind and organisers are sure that the smallest county will have a big knock-on effect for the rest of the country.

Kerry Rough, marketing coordinator for Rutland Cycling attended the launch day at Victoria Hall in Oakham on the 11th January to help enrol people onto the rides.
