Have you got a name for your bike? Yes, Bella.
Why did you start scooting to work?
When I moved to London for my Part 1 year out I bought ‘Bella’.
How far do you commute?
Limehouse, East London. Not too far, takes about 20 minutes if I put my foot (twist my hand) down.
What’s the best and worst thing about riding a 1961 Vespa to work?
Best is the looks and comments you get from people. I was once waiting on Tower Bridge for the lights to change, and a group of 20 Japanese tourists starting taking photos of my bike.
Worst is that I don’t have mirrors, and lorry/busses are VERY big compared to me.
How long have you had your bike?
3 years. But she is 52 years old now, so you have to treat an old lady with respect!
Whats your favourite bike accessory?
No bike accessory is cool. The less the better.
Where do you most like to cycle?
Anywhere but the tight streets of Shoreditch are always fun.
