Bike Hire Scheme students: Nikita
Nikita (MSc Psychology of Sport & Exercise) tells us more about her year renting a bike from the Bike Hub and how much she enjoyed it.
How did you get into cycling and why do you recommend it to students?
I always enjoyed having a cycle as a kid and thought it would be great to get back on it. Additionally, on arriving in Leeds, I was waiting at a bus stop and saw 1 cycle pass every two minutes, this further motivated me to get one.
The reason I always recommend students to get a cycle is simply due to the fact that it's cost and time effective in the sense, you save on travelling expense and cover distance quicker.
