Happiness is… riding a bike

Sometimes riding a bike makes me really happy. This evening I took my friend for a ride up to and around Hampstead. She was really scared of hills and didn’t think she’d even make it up the road from Camden to Hampstead (whatever that’s called) but was an absolute trooper and stormed up everything in sight. She was so happy that I’d taken her and wants to ride more. It’s great to see the happiness that cycling can bring to people.

As an additional bonus we didn’t get lost once (despite me not knowing north london and not having a map), I didn’t embarrass myself on any hills (would have defeated the point of the ride I guess) and we didn’t get told off for cycling on the heath.

What a lovely evening.
