It seems a bit sad to choose the biggest reason for me cycling being to get away from Northern Rail but cycling has really made my life happier as I don't have to deal with the stress and anger of the delayed and cancelled trains, and it keeps me fit for free and don't produce any CO2 emissions! Win win in every single way! Great indicative btw :)

Discovered cycling 2 years ago and haven’t looked back. Inspired by my 72 year old Dad who has also taken up cycling recently.
"I love my bike. It's good for my mental and physical wellbeing. It gives me a sense of freedom. Hope to be cycling as long as I'm able. " [Age 70]

I love riding my bike for transport and fun with my family. I'm a member of Lady Pedal Manchester women's cycling collective, I'm a Breeze Champion ride leader and coach for British cycling running entry level friendly rides and I work as a Community Activator for British Cycling across the North West. I love encouraging and signposting people to opportunities for getting into cycling.
Bicycle lover most of my live - childhood in India and now in UK.
Long-time cyclist - I wouldn’t use anything else now! As a community activist it is the best way to explore my local streets, stop and talk to people and check problems ... as well as the normal things (shopping, health , carbon reduction and air quality etc)
I just want everyone to ride a bike - for leisure, for sport, for transport! The benefits are endless - for body & for mind. I run PoWWow Pedal Power [you're right here!] - a community cycling & arts project hoping to bring people, paint and pedals all together. My last entry for MCRWomenBike in 2015 looked a lot different to this one - now there are two new little cyclists to add to my story! If communities and councils can continue to work together, hopefully this next generation of cyclists will have safer roads to ride on.
