On your bike

Life is better on two wheels

Cycling has received a bit of a bad rep, with news of crashes and theft reaching us daily, which discourages many of us from strapping on our helmets, tying our laces, and setting off on two wheels. But if you’re fed up with sitting in traffic jams, waiting for the tube or running for buses, we strongly urge you to reconsider the faithful bike. Not only will you save your pennies on the endless list of expenses – Oyster, MOTs, train tickets – you’ll be saving the planet, too. Plus, riding a bike can be surprisingly liberating.

So, if you have been playing with the idea of investing in an eco-friendly method of transport (and an electric car is a little out of your price range), but a bike seems a little intimidating, we’re here to help. Jenni Gwiazdowski, cycling advocate and founder of the London Bike Kitchen, tells us how you can feel more confident on two wheels, encouraging you to take life by the handlebars.

About Be Kind

Hello, A warm welcome to our very first issue. I wonder what led you to pick up our magazine from the stand? Perhaps the striking image caught your eye? Or, maybe the title, Be Kind, struck a chord? Either way, we hope you’re here because you, too, want to make the world a better place. It’s a scary and uncertain time, as we watch our seas fill with plastic, our bins bulge and our air become dense with fumes and pollution. Each month, these pages will be packed with positive, proactive solutions to help you make small, achievable changes that will have a much bigger global impact. This month we’re focusing in on the huge problem of plastic. As one of the biggest, most talked about environmental issues of the last year, plastic has affected every corner of the earth and all aspects of the environment. From ditching straws and water bottles, to who to follow on Instagram for zero-waste inspiration, we’ve rounded up some motivating ideas to help you reduce your own footprint. We all need to learn to tread a little more lightly, and it’s these small steps that will spark and inspire greater progress. Showing a little kindness is what the world needs right now. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Editor
