“I really love cycling. It is one of the few means of transportation whereby you can speed without incurring a fine, you can park without being clamped, there’s no road tax, no NCT, no insurance, and no environmental pollution.
The problems in the global economy that affect the price of petroleum do not even affect your transport costs! It is a good way for me to exercise daily. It is the only time I am free from the emotional stress that I constantly go through.
This is the only time I am truly on my own – free from worries. Therefore, whatever your problem – obesity, high blood pressure, lack of appetite, insomnia – consult your bicycle! So, cycling time is my time of absolute freedom. I love it and enjoy it, always!”
