FOUR legs are better than two at a pair of Warwickshire care homes where cycling side-by-side has become all the rage.

WCS Care has introduced side-by-side bikes-for-two – known as ‘companion bikes’ – and cycle tracks at Drovers House in Rugby and Castle Brook in Kenilworth.

Ed Russell, director of innovation for the charity, said: “Spending time outdoors has lots of benefits for older people and people with dementia.

“Not only can the fresh air help you feel happier, it can also reduce stress. The side-by-side bike-for-two is a great excuse to get outdoors, and give your health and well-being a boost.”
