CYCLE ENFIELD STORY
Healthwise, I think this is one of the best projects in Enfield, people get exercise.
I’m originally from what was Bombay, India but I can’t go now because I can no longer fly. I’ve lived in Enfield for 52 years, then there wasn’t traffic like there is today. I didn’t even need to have a bicycle lock. Healthwise, I think this is one of the best projects in Enfield, people get exercise. I ride bikes more than ever now.
I like taking the bus too, you sit down on the top and see everything. We used to go on the 269 to look at Lords Cricket Ground. I like Australia House, Royal Court of Justice, there is such beautiful architecture in London.
Cycling is good for your health, it can take you where ever you want to go.
“ I come here to enjoy cycling, whatever the weather! I’m 78 now and I’m still going on. I had a mild stroke and now I’m only taking a few tablet. ”
I had a stroke a couple of years ago, and thought that I would never ever get back on a bike. As a teenager I cycled in what was Bombay, it was a cheap and accessible way to get around and I enjoyed the sense of freedom. After my stroke my GP advised me to make changes to my diet to increase my level of fitness. I discovered the free Inclusive cycling sessions at my local Bush Hill Park. Over time I have gone from cycling on a tricycle to using a two wheeler. I don’t need to use a stick to help me get around!
