“Since cycle hire arrived in Birmingham it’s changed the way I get about. No more worries about parking spaces or city congestion; depending on where I need to be I either walk or take the train and then pick up a bike to nip around town and complete my journey.
“The best bit for me is the feeling when I get to work, having already got some exercise in I feel really energised and ready to start my day. After work it’s also very handy as I can pick up a bike from near my office and cycle across town to meet friends for drinks or an early dinner.
“There are so many docks around the city, so whether we’re meeting in Digbeth, Jewellery Quarter or the city centre, I’m totally flexible and able to get anywhere I need to really quickly and easily.”
