Councillor Maisie Anderson kicks off scheme with 10km cycle


Olympic fever hit Southwark on Friday as one councillor kicked off the ‘Road to Rio’ challenge by cycling 10km at the Castle Centre, Tom Deacon writes.

The council challenged residents to run, cycle, swim or row the distance over the weekend, as part of the launch of a free swim and gym programme.

Cabinet member for Public Health, Parks and leisure, Councillor Maisie Anderson (pictured) took up the challenge and cycled the distance from Southwark to Rio.

The scheme gives residents free access to swimming pools and gyms at leisure centres, all day on Fridays, and from 2pm on Saturday and Sunday.
