Name: Eloise

Location: South London

Current commuting bike: Orbea Carpe 10

Favourite commuting kit: My Laka coral t-shirt! 😂 But actually, I always try to wear bright things when I am commuting and the coral t-shirt is perfect.

Why do you pick cycling as your transport?: It is my fastest and easiest option to get around! Also a great way to fit in some exercise on a busy day.

What is the most useful cycling tip you have received?: Always carry a backpack cover, ensures you are easily seen and protects your stuff from the rain!

Why do you think it is important to get women cycling?: There is still such a gender gap in cycling, but we all know how important it is to consider the environmental impact in what we do in our day to day lives. I believe encouraging women to start cycling is the simplest lifestyle adjustment to help us move towards greener cities.

What do you think is the biggest barrier to women cycling?: Confidence and safety unfortunately.

Your favourite environmentally friendly habit?: I love my coffee, but I hate the waste from take away coffee cups, so I always have a reusable cup on me.

Greener cities through women cycling....
