Anthony's Story

Anthony

“ I love the fact that I can travel great distances without polluting the environment just by using my own energy. ”

Although I didn’t buy my first road bike until May 2021, I did previously have a mountain bike and BMX bike. I also had an annual membership for Santander Cycles in 2016/2017.

When I decided to buy my first road bike, I found that I had a problem in that there was no space to store it in my flat and I didn’t feel that my shed provided a safe alternative. Being able to get a space in a cycle hangar allowed me to buy my bike knowing that I had somewhere secure to store it.

I use my bike to get to my sporting activities and shopping. Cycling gives me pleasure, is great for the environment, helps to keep me fit and healthy and saves me money.

“ I love the feeling cycling gives me, being able to travel without polluting my environment, go where cars are not allowed and it is a less boring and a lot faster than walking! ”

I love the fact that I can travel great distances without polluting the environment just by using my own energy. Cycling is, to me, a flow state activity, gives me a sense of fluidity between body and mind and puts me in the zone. When I’m cycling time flies, I feel focused and happy and completely immersed.

It’s great using segregated cycle lanes apart from when you come across illegally parked cars, and it would be great to have more of them in Enfield.
