'Without the bicycle I wouldn't get through life - it takes me to work and back and basically puts food on the table. It is a little stressful on the roads and one has to watch out for the cars - but I enjoy cycling more than driving with a car. I've had many accidents. Like a car driving in front of me and then I fall over the bonnet, scratch my arms and break a finger or so - but I just get on the bicycle and cycle on. I can't get along without my bicycle. I listen to RSG on my radio, it keeps me company on the bicycle - you don't have anyone to chat to whilst you cycle. I've been working at the same place for seven years now, they are looking out for me and treat me well, so I'm staying there. Her name is Rainbow, from small days she has been a she. This is Rainbow, and she takes me where I need to be. I've been cycling for 20 years now, since I was 14, I'm 34 now. I'm carrying here on the bicycle some bones for my dogs at home, they had a party at my work last night - so I'm taking the left overs home.'
