Modeshift Board Responsibility: South West Representative

How long have you been with Modeshift? Since 2015.

If you could only choose to promote one way to travel, what would it be and why? Walking is my favourite mode. I live about half an hours walk away from my home and walk to work every day whatever the weather. It helps me keep active and I get my 10,000 steps in. I try and vary my route as much as I can; it could be a walk through the busy streets, or along the river through a park or through the old part of the city and there is also something to look at. Today I noticed a Blue Plaque on a building that I hadn’t noticed before – its showing that Dr Elizabeth Blackwell lived in a street in St Pauls, she was born in 1821 and was the first woman to be placed on the Medical Register and to practice in England.

Tell us something we didn’t know about you? I used to be a circus performer, stilt walker and trapeze artist.

What’s your biggest work achievement to date? I set up the Bristol Family Cycling Centre - where people of all ages and abilities can learn to cycle in a traffic free environment.

What do you do for fun? I spend time on my narrowboat and love canals and rivers. I am also a very proficient sock knitter!
