Cycling in the City

Written 28 October 2016: If you have visited Glasgow recently then you have probably seen the in fashion mode of transport – bikes. The rising popularity follows the harrowing NHS report that said air pollution kills 40,000 people in the UK yearly. It seems like Glasgow is pulling together to do their bit and starting to choose cycling over driving with the number of people cycling there tripling since 2007.

It’s a treat to ourselves for both being completely finished with uni and we wanted to wait until our dissertations were submitted to fully commit to looking for something. But seriously, you need the time when getting something booked. It was 3/4 hours of two laptops and countless tabs to find somewhere that we got a good feeling about. Somewhere that … Continue reading I’ve booked a holiday!
