Claire Linton’s taking part in Bike Week

Clare regularly rides to work and has found lots of benefits to choosing her bike over other transport modes.

What do you love the most about cycling to work?

Before regularly cycling to work, what was your biggest barrier to cycling becoming part of your everyday routine?

I’ve always been a bit concerned about sharing the roads with motorised traffic but I think that my confidence grows the more I cycle.

I also think that having the right kit always helps, so having a good pannier bag that I can chuck all my stuff in makes things easier and means I don’t get so hot as when I’m cycling with a backpack on.

If you could go on a tandem cycle ride with any celebrity, who would it be and why?

Lizzie Deignan (nee Armistead) so she could help me up the hills!
