Return to the saddle is revelation for Hounslow’s Hanif Khan – Transport Xtra
Hounslow Councils’ cabinet member for transport told delegates at the Local Transport Summit how re-discovering the joys of cycling has improved his health and the quality of his life.
“In my childhood I liked cycling around – it gave me a bit of freedom. But then I stopped and didn’t touch my cycle for 30 years,” said Cllr Hanif Khan.
He said he saw using his car as more convenient, even for short journeys, and got into the habit of eating in his car.
