Cycling and walking have been my main modes of transport for over 10 years, mainly as it helps me feel more mentally and physically healthy and also saves me money.
I started with York Bike Belles as a student intern in 2015, then became a volunteer as I really enjoyed being part of the walking and cycling community around York. I now help with promotion and delivery of events. I enjoy working with families and seeing people’s confidence grow. I get to see and hear first hand what’s working and what people’s barriers are, so we can tailor our support to their needs.
I’m a trained ride and walk leader. My favourite rides are our themed rides, such as our annual Spooky and Illuminating York ride – any excuse to dress up!
