Get spinning at the Orange Blossom Festival

Head down to this vibrant Sydney Hills festival and join in Medibank’s fresh, fun spin classes.

The brightest community festival of the year is back in Sydney’s serene Hills district, and as the proud official sponsor, Medibank is bringing an active touch.

The Orange Blossom Festival, running over 19-20 September, is a vibrant, family-friendly celebration of arts, food, nature, culture and community. Browse market stalls, check out classic cars and bikes, admire local art, learn about bonsai and explore everything this charming pocket of Sydney has to offer.

To encourage everyone to get moving this spring, Medibank is hosting a series of unique spin classes across the weekend. Head down to the ‘Active Zest’ sports zone, refuel with some fresh juices, and take part in a fun, social class that will get your heart racing.

There are two types of spin experiences on offer:

  • Pelotone On Saturday, the team from Pelotone Spin Studio will lead three spin sessions – two with a strong family and community focus, and one inspired by Pelotone’s famous ‘party’ rides.
  • Bike n’ Blend On Sunday, hop up on a Bike n’ Blend bike fitted with a juicer, and be amazed as you cycle your way to a healthy smoothie or juice.

The Orange Blossom Festival takes place at Castle Hill Showground on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 September 2015.

To register for the Medibank spin classes, please send your name and contact number to sonja.sparavec@medibank.com.au or call Sonja Sparavec on 02 9917-8194.
