Bike lifeIt's how we roll

Libby's story

Libby uses her bike to get from A to B and B to A. It means "going to work and back for no money." She uses her bike to go to the shops and to go out in the evening. She goes to the cinema, to the theatre, on bike rides with friends. Even going on holiday. "Everything really," she says. Libby says her car mostly sits on her drive and that she gets to work "feeling invigorated" and cycles to "wake herself up on the way home."
