Cycling my way through life…
I have a very detailed memory of riding a bicycle without any support for the first time. I was about six years old. My grandfather let go of my bike whilst I was cycling away thinking he was still supporting me. But once I realised I was on my own, this completely blew my mind. I felt free, liberated and one step closer to adulthood.
When I moved to Cambridge in 2010, riding a bicycle was pretty much my daily grind. I biked my way to college, the supermarket and even my local pub. *orders a pint* However, things have changed once I moved to London. The chaos of the Big Smoke kept my passion for cycling at bay. *scared to face the London traffic*
When I started my new job in August, I bought an annual Santander cycle pass. I found this program to be very convenient and easy to use. Dedicated bike lanes and traffic lights really have made cycling a safer commuting option for a money-conscious Londoner like me.
I’ve been wanting to own a bike for quite some time but never really found one to be good enough for my busy lifestyle. I mean, until I was introduced to S2P Bikes!
Inspired by the streets of London, these single speed bicycles are very light, stylish and durable. But most importantly, it only took me 30 minutes to put this bike together! *wowzers* With a strong focus on sustainability and performance, the S2P bikes are authentic and (best of all) affordable!
My S2P in the Wild!
After almost 2 weeks on my new bike, I must admit that I’m in love. I chose the carbon black one because it offers timeless style with utmost practicality. Apart from the sleek black matte finish, the bike features the puncture resistant tyres and premium pressed brown leather saddle. Therefore, it’s perfectly made for me!
Whether it’s for my daily commute or general fitness, owning a bike is just a thousand times better. I can park my bike everywhere and there’s no time limit. *phew* It’s a peace of mind.
If you’re looking to buy your own bike, I’d strongly recommend checking S2P bikes out. You won’t be disappointed! *thumbs up*
