'I have a bicycle just for going around, if I need to go maybe to relax a little bit or to buy something in the shop - if I want to do it quickly, then I use a bicycle. We are a community here in Woodstock, we are students learning to become priests. We have a car at home but it is not enough for us to do everything with a car, we need something else a little bit more practical to doing quick small things. We have two bicycles and we are at home 6 students. We are a Roman Catholic church and we are all from the DRC - here on temporary residence just for studying. We are going to be here for three years, from Kinshasa - the capital of the DRC. I enjoy the bicycle because I can do things quickly, if I walk things will take a long time. It is also exercise for the body and I can relax my soul. When I use it, it is more comfortable than a car. We had one that was better than this one before but it was stolen, then some friends of the church gave us these bicycles.'
