Karishma: “I started riding in the park with a friend during lockdown, but that friendship broke down. I have a visual impairment and I’m a guide dog owner: I thought without that friend, I don’t know how to cycle any more!
"So I Googled ‘cycling buddies in Croydon’ and found Jess. It’s been so much more than I expected. We’ve gone to some amazing places. I’ve met Jess and met a group of people cycling in Croydon, which I would never have done on my own. Doing this has inspired me.”
