CYCLE ENFIELD STORY
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. As a child I was inspired by the freedom of movement that comes with cycling.

“ ‘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.’ ”
It’s the gears and cables propelling you forward that I love, I call it poetry in motion! In the UK I did my accredited on-road training certificate years ago and since then cycling has been my main mode of transport. 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!
