Richard Gourlay- North Middlesex University Hospital

“ I cycle to work because it is cheaper than a vehicle and its quicker than any other form of transport. ”

Richard Gourlay- Director of Strategic Development

I cycle from Alexandra Palace to the hospital. It takes me an average of 13 minutes but sometimes I’ll take a longer route which is 25 minutes.

I cycle to work because it is cheaper than a vehicle and its quicker than any other form of transport. It keeps me fit and is a good way of feeling “alive” when getting to work and “unwinding” on the way home.

“ We have too many cars. We are all not fit enough, cycling needs to be made safer, and the world needs to be greener. ”

There needs to be more space for cycling to encourage people to take up commuting and also weekend cycling. We need to create more spaces for children to be able to cycle away from main roads but that allows them to develop their confidence on a bike – including particularly signalling and being aware of others including pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.
