Clients at New Horizons Newry have been using pedal power to challenge themselves ahead of National Fitness Day on Wednesday, September 23. A number of cyclists took to the trails to complete an impressive 24-mile cycle from Newry to Scarva and back, enjoying the benefits of the great outdoors.
The group bike ride was part of a series of activities undertaken by the New Horizons gang which also included running, walking and swimming. Collectively, they clocked up a whopping 1000 miles. They cycled under sunny skies and had so much fun en route that they might even get on their bikes again to aim for 2000 miles!
