Meet Sarah Nisbet, WestCycle’s Project Officer
How/Why did you get into/involved in bike riding?
My dad was a pro cyclist in his 20’s and he’s kept cycling since so the sport has always been on the table since I can remember. But I only really got into cycling after I moved to Australia. I can confidently say that it’s down to the nice, warm sunny weather but also having so many safe and accessible bike paths on our doorstep. I went from a complete rookie with no confidence. I think my nerves were a mix of not knowing where I was going or really what I’d do if something went wrong (flat tyre etc). But after a couple rides, I was hooked.
What is your favourite bike riding experience/highlight?
One tip you have for new/novice riders?
Don’t be nervous. There are so many safe bike paths to try for your first ride. If you are nervous before heading out, do a bit planning beforehand so you know where you are going to go, go easy and just enjoy it!
If you could ride anywhere in the world, where would you ride?
I love to travel so I think it would be cool to do a bike packing trip somewhere and that could be anywhere really!
Fun or interesting fact about you
