Brief introduction

What do I do in spare time? Well there’s lots of different things I could tell you about – I’m a pretty active person and I like to keep myself busy so even when I’m not working I’m always doing something.

What it is

I suppose my favourite activity is simply riding my bicycle. I moved to Cambridge about a year now and it’s a city famous for being bike friendly – perhaps because it’s so flat. So I decided to buy myself a bike. At first it was just to go to work but I enjoyed it so much that I also started cycling for fun.

When and where I do it

At first I would just ride around the city by myself – going through some of the parks and down by the riverside. Then I discovered that there was a really active Cycling Club. It’s really just a group of people who like to get out and about on the weekend. So I joined up and started going out with them most Saturdays. We don’t tend to go very far – normally only around 20-25 miles and we don’t race. The idea is just to enjoy the day and we normally end up in one of the local villages and share a meal or picnic before heading back into the city.

Why I enjoy it

I enjoy cycling because it’s of course good exercise and I like to keep fit. But it’s a bit more than that. It allows me to get out of the city and see some of the countryside.
