Let's face it, lockdown changed how we do a lot of things! Going for a ride with my friends has become my favourite trip out. Especially if we can grab a coffee and some cake!
I like going out for a ride on my own, but I didn't feel confident on my own in case something happened to my bike. What if I got a puncture, or my chain broke? I started looking into how to do some basic fixes. I found people want to help, but often this means doing something FOR me rather than teaching me to do it myself. I got friends to teach me what they could, I went on courses to learn more and I volunteered for a social enterprise that ran a workshop so I could learn more about mechanics.
I fell in love with bikes. I became addicted. I love riding! I love working on my bike! Most of all I love passing on what I have learned to others so they can do the same.
