    When did you start cycling?
    At 28 and after a ten-year absence from cycling, I decided to get back on the saddle and start again…
    There was a mix of reasons why I’d stopped cycling by the time I was 18; I wasn’t feeling that confident on the roads anymore, and I’d managed to convince myself (through my own fears of London’s traffic) that it wasn’t the best transport option to get to uni. As time went on, I really missed the freedom and happiness I’d get out of riding and at 28 I got my dream bicycle: a Pashley Princess.
    Even in all the excitement about cycling again, I’m not ashamed to admit I was pretty nervous about it all… it was a long time since I’d been on a bike and there were even serious moments of doubt when I was riding the Pashley home from the shop, to the point of thinking I’d give it up as soon as I got indoors!
    Three years (and now owning three bikes) later, and I can certainly say getting back on the saddle has turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

    What do you like about cycling?
    I’ve actually fallen in love with cycling and the way it has changed my life. The way I think, feel and see life is very different to the person I was three years ago… and it’s all thanks to the bicycle.

    What advice would you give to people don't cycle?
    It’s never too late to take up cycling and I say go for it! Do some research and look into getting a bike suited to your needs. Then go at your own pace.
    Be safe, be happy and enjoy the freedom of riding a bike!
