Cycling around Europe

CNC residents are literally getting on their bikes for some exercise and a tour of Europe.

New technology has brought the ‘virtual’ bike to our premises. The stationary bicycle is connected to a screen that is programmed to show images of the street. Turning the handlebars of the bicycle alters the view and users can effectively peddle along the roads of Europe passing some famous landmarks whilst getting a cardio vascular workout.

Those who have been lucky enough to visit any of these destinations in the past can also re-live some of their holiday memories. This is proving a great hit but the bike has enormous potential to help those living with dementia. By changing the view, it should be possible for them to visit streets and neighbourhoods that were once familiar.
