'I'm coming from work now, on the way home. I cycle every day, for two specific reasons - I want to get more fit, and otherwise, its just because parking and petrol is so expensive. I save a bit where I can. I don't stay too far from work, about 1.6 kilometers, so it’s pretty close, not too far to cycle. I’ve been cycling a year and 3 months now, bought the bike specifically for this purpose. I have a car parked at home, I only drive it when I need to go to head office. It’s not too bad to cycle in town, especially in the mornings it’s fun. It is a little dangerous. I've been hit by a taxi before, that is my biggest concern. I have a light, but I try not to cycle at night, I make sure I'm home before dark.'
