‘As much as we like driving (and I do drive), cars will not be a sustainable mode of travel in the long-term, especially for short trips.’
I cycle to and from Edmonton to Honilands School for work, I also cycle at the weekend. On a good day it takes me 25 minutes but when there is a lot of traffic it takes 35 minutes. It is a safe, cheap and fast way to get to work on time and it is environmentally friendly.
I have always cycled. It’s the gears and cables propelling you forward that I love, I call it poetry in motion! London inspires me and cycling enables me to explore the city, through London Cycle Diaries I have discovered lesser known parts.
Cycle Enfield is a great initiative, I have supported it since the start. Of course there’ve been teething problems but it’s nothing that we cannot all solve together! As much as we like driving (and I do drive), cars will not be a sustainable mode of travel in the long-term, especially for short trips.
With the scheme we can raise much-needed awareness of road safety, reduce car usage and encourage people to take up cycling and walking as a green option. It will ease congestion, reduce pollution and it’s fun!
