Rev Gill Barrow-Jones, of St. George’s and Holy Trinity Churches in Wolverton, has been getting around on her bicycle. 22 trips in the last 18 days, as part of MK Council’s Ride It Out promotion in March (see her stats)!
“I cycle for lots of reasons,” she says. “Sometimes cycle It’s because I am late on the school run and it gets me there quickly! Other times because it’s a great way to get around in my parish. Whilst cycling I can see loads of people and stop to chat quite easily and hear what is going on in Wolverton.
“I did 8 miles last weekend delivering Mothering Sunday posies. Loved it!
“I like to cycle because it keeps me fit (especially with the gym and swimming pool closed). It’s good to get out and get active.
“I also cycle because it is good for the environment. God asks us to care for the world and turning on the car engine creates a lot of CO2. Getting on a bike is good for everyone.
“I especially like to cycle with my kids. It is such good fun and gets them off electronic devices for a while too!
“I’d love more people to cycle. The Redways in Milton Keynes make it super easy. Go get your bike out!”
