CYCLE ENFIELD STORY
I went to Halfords to buy a bike, it was a horrible experience and I didn’t end up getting a bike, it was so bad I decided to just leave it. The staff there did not help me to find what I needed. Then I found out about the £10 cycle loan scheme via the local council magazine; Our Enfield.
We were flicking through it. We went on the site and decided to try out the scheme and it was really good. We couldn’t believe how quick and easy it was, we were picking up our bikes a couple of days later.
“ Cycling is relaxing, it’s like meditating for me. ”
I think it is a great idea for people who don’t know much about cycling, the people at the cycle scheme helped me with all the things I really needed and provided training too. The scheme helps people who can’t afford to buy a bike straight away, and those people who want to see if riding a bike works out for them. It’s great not being stuck on a bus, I had to get on one recently and it was really horrible, there was so much traffic. I can’t believe that there is so much traffic on Enfield’s roads. Since having the bike I cycle from Caterhatch Lane to Bush Hill Park to get to work.
Cycling is relaxing; for me it’s like meditating.
