THERE will soon be a way to burn calories with your nose in a book thanks to the introduction of two spin bike desks at the Kwinana Public Library from June 4.

The bikes will be found near the gaming consoles and screens, and riders can vary the resistance while tracking their distance and speed.

“These spin bike desks are easy to use and are a lot of fun,” Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams.

“More importantly, they’re a great way for people who are time poor, people who can’t exercise outdoors or for those who have difficulty sitting still whilst reading,” she said.

The bikes are virtually silent, and will eventually make their way across the City of Kwinana, popping up at community-based events and visiting community centres.

The spin bike desks have been designed to be used for reading and listening to audiobooks, as well as creating small puzzles or using personal devices.
