Bike View- My City Bike Help

By Hunter Walsh

Not-for-profit Sutter Health network and global public health alliance My City Bikes are teaming up to make Modesto a healthier place to live. The free My City Bikes Modesto app for beginner cyclists – established with verified beginner-friendly Oakdale Bicycle Shop in 2015 – is expanding to include prescribed rides, Sutter community health information, and the cyclists in healthcare directory. Thanks to Sutter Health, Modesto will be one of the first 6 cities in the United States to have the Prescribed Rides program. If you have risk factors for common issues like adult onset diabetes, heart disease, or overweight and obesity, or you simply want to stay healthy and fit, these new tools can take the guesswork out of doctor-recommended physical activity:

1. Download the free My City Bikes Modesto app.
2. Select “Prescribed Rides” from the app menu.
3. Choose a ride that matches the amount of time your doctor recommends to exercise.

“It’s a new way for healthcare professionals to give more specific guidance to patients so that they have a clear path to follow and are more likely to keep up with physical activity recommendations,” said MCB Communities Director Ali Cena. “The Cyclists in Healthcare directory coming out this summer will feature Sutter Health’s medical professionals who bike as healthy living role models. Sutter Health is helping to build the biggest bike team in America one beginner at a time – join the team!”
