I probably cycle to work if it’s nice weather and I’ve got enough time and it’s good for mental health for people. It means that I can get out and relax a little bit more. I think it’s such a lovely thing they’re doing – it’s such an amazing thing.

Some of these NHS workers are finding it difficult to actually get to work, with trouble with public transport, so we’re helping them. This fits us, it fits the NHS requirements and it helps combat this crisis.

There was a couple last week, both worked – husband and wife – that worked at Solihull Hospital and it was just amazing to be able to give them a bike each, to take them up there and to see them riding off on it and then now being able to cycle to work as they was [were] getting the bus. It’s a great feeling, it really is a great feeling.
