Tell us a little about yourself

I am a sixty-five-year-old, retired English teacher.

What do you use your bike for?

I use my bike mainly for local errands and the occasional bike ride with my family.

What do you love about cycling?

I enjoy cycling because I enjoy the sense of freedom and movement.

Where did you store your bicycle before you had a Bikehangar?

Before I had the use of a Bikehangar, I used the front hallway to my flat.

Tell us why you love your Bikehangar?

I love my Bikehangar, because storing my bike in the hall was a pain-in-the-neck.

What is your top tip for getting one on your street?

My top tip for getting one in your street is to pester the living daylights out of your Borough Cycling Officer. Ours is a very decent bloke who will respond to patience, humour and charm.
