Charlene – Bristol

“26 year old, illustrator and designer who can be found at”

Why do you ride?

I ride to get to work and back (13 mile round trip!). It wakes me up in the morning, and clears my head off the days’ work in the evening. Aside from the work commute, it is my one and only mode of transport!

Best thing about cycling?

That it is infinitely quicker than walking! Also there really isnt anything else that puts such an uncontrollable grin on my face as whizzing down a long downhill.

What improvements would you like to see for cyclists?

I am lucky because Bristol is officially the cycling city of the UK. HOWEVER, i think there should be plenty more cycle lanes, and perhaps some education in people’s driving tests about being conscious of cyclists and motorcyclists that are sharing the same road as them.

Fondest cycling memory?

I think this is every day for me. Only because (cliche coming up) it just gets better everyday I cycle!

Cycling tip?

Slim shoes. My main pair was wet in the rain a few days ago and I had to use running trainers on my morning commute.. it wasn’t great. And a hi-vis and helmet always. Possibly dorky, but dorky is better than dead.

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

– I love Lula and Charles, my two cats, like they’re my children. I even stick up the pigeon feathers that they bring home for me on the wall like a proud parent.

– I love drawing, so much.

– I love love, so much.
