Claire – Melbourne

“mid-twenties, rider who doesn’t need to be bubbled wrapped when cycling to university or around the city, though some may beg to differ…!

Why do you ride?

It’s a really easy way to get around quickly.  I love the fact that in traffic I go faster than cars.

Best thing about cycling?

Going faster than cars!  And going really fast down hills.

What improvements would you like to see for cyclists?

It’s a pretty great city to cycle in, it’s really easy.  I’m from South Africa and I never cycled cause it’s too dangerous.  Here I can cycle at night.  The cars I find are quite aware of cyclists.  I love the fact that you can take your bicycle on the train.

Fondest cycling memory?

I stayed in Oxford for a month and that was really fun, cycling the meadows and stuff.

Cycling tip?

Lycra ain’t so bad… know Craig, he’s fixed my bike!

3 things you’d love the world to know about you?

– I’ve broken my nose twice, and my thumb

– I’m from a place near the Kruger National Park

– I’m addicted to vanilla wafer sticks
