Cycling

There are many opportunities for cycling at Mindenhurst, be it for leisure, health, or accessing school or work. The Mindenhurst development has been designed with cycling in mind. There is a network of cycle routes provided by the development which have been designed to connect all of the residential neighbourhoods with local facilities both within Mindenhurst and beyond.

Cycling allows an opportunity for sustainable, green travel with the added benefit of being able to travel a little further than by journeys on foot.

Aside from being the most environmentally friendly way to travel, cycling has other benefits. Cycling regularly will provide genuine health benefits. For example, reducing the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, obesity and some cancers. It also reduces cholesterol, lowers high blood pressure and is good for your sense of well being.
