Lollipop man Brian got in contact with us to share his satisfaction with his bike M.O.T performed by The Hub’s mechanics. Brian brought his bike in for some TLC following a discussion he had with a Hub volunteer who had passed Brian on duty. He said that “it’s like a new bike!”
Brian travels 2 miles between his home and work, 4 times a day by bike, so as to monitor the school crossing before and after school. He said that “by keeping me on my bike, I am able to make other people’s commute to school safe and possible!”
He continued to say that “without the bike I would have to walk or pay for the bus. I have knee trouble so walking would be a problem. I have also had my hip replaced and I don’t want to make my joints worse.”
As demonstrated by Brian, cycling offers an active, environmentally friendly, low-cost mode of transport as well as a physically low-impact form of exercise which is great for long term personal health and fitness!
Thanks for sharing your story Brian!
