Green helps me go for gold (Eco news)

Green helps me go for gold
The Independent reported

Olympic sprint kayak champion Tim Brabants may spend much of the day on the water training for 2012, but when he’s not paddling, he’s peddling.

“Cycling everywhere is just something I’ve always done,” says Tim, who is taking a break from being a doctor to prepare for London 2012. “Even when I was doing my GCSEs I used to cycle six miles to and from school. I cycle everywhere I can – to the club, to the gym and when I was working at the hospital, I used to cycle to work. It’s much more dependable than some forms of transport, more energy efficient, it can be quicker and you don’t have to find somewhere to park. For me, it’s also a way to keep up my level of fitness.
