“Riding my bike is an adventure”

From a young age, Saleem found the joys of biking! Now that he is older he enjoys cycling to school, being independent and the simple pleasure of following your own adventure – your own way!

Well, the best thing about cycling, is that you can go in busy and remote areas unlike a car, where you can only follow where the road takes you – but on a bike, you can go wherever you want!

You see things you would never see if you were travelling past by car. There are lots of added benefits too like helping the environment, getting fresh air and feeling fit and healthy.

“On a bike, you can go wherever you want.”

I find that I feel relaxed, and it definitely has an impact on my physical and mental wellbeing.

Saleem’s mum, Abida says:

Even if the weather is bad – in the winter when it’s freezing, he still wants to go on his bike – it keeps him fit and healthy. If I take him to school in the car, the journey can be twice as long than if he cycles, so it actually saves us both time.

We’re really happy that he enjoys riding his bike, he gets fresh air and keeps healthy.
