As part of our push to encourage a healthy, active lifestyle, Magnus has set up a cycle-to-work-scheme for the Fishbox Team.
"Cycling is something that I feel very passionate about and have done for a long time -- especially after working with the great people from Bikes of Inverness for 3.5 years. I feel it's the best way to see the surroundings that you're in giving you both the benefit of time to see the sights whilst also being able to cover a greater distance than you would on foot. The little things in life give you a great amount of joy whilst also being beneficial for a healthy body and mind." - Magnus Houston MD
We went to Magnus's old work place, Bikes of Inverness, to pick out our new rides. Here are some photos from our afternoon out.
Lucy chose a hybrid.
"I chose a hybrid as I'd like to be able to do a bit of mountain biking with my boyfriend, but I'll mainly be using it for gentle off-roading. I want to do the Cycle for Scotland race, so didn't want anything too hardcore to slow me down!"
Morven also selected a hybrid bike.
"I'll be using my bike for cycling to work as I usually walk and it takes half an hour. Cycling should cut the time and allow me to see more of the beautiful Highlands. With spring just around the corner, it's perfect timing and I couldn't be more excited about my new wheels."
Magnus opted for an electric mountain bike to help him reach his goal of ticking 'as many Munros as possible' off his list this year.
Thanks very much again to Kenny, Roddy, Scott and Julian for their excellent, expert assistance!
Meanwhile, we're all excited to explore more of the Highlands this spring with the warmer weather and lighter nights!
