After growing up in The Netherlands I decided to follow my heart and move to England. I love it here. Even after over five years I still learn new, weird, illogical things about the workings of the land that is Great Britain.
My favourite modes of transport are walking and cycling. I don’t drive although I could. Together with _Blixa_ I promote 30 days of biking in the UK. The idea is simple. Ride your bike, every day, for 30 days in April. Then you talk about it. It really is an amazing experience and I’ve joined a great community of cyclists across the world. It’s also made me a lot more aware of issues around cycling in the UK, and I’m starting to get involved in cycling campaiging in my local area.
I work for a national charity that promotes walking and cycling for the masses. In my spare time, I knit, sew, and do other crafty things. I also talk, quite a lot.
