Cycling whilst Pregnant

Pregnant Danes wouldn’t deign to get off their bikes, so why do friends and cab drivers take exception to childbearing cyclists?

Sam Haddad, Editor at Cooler Magazine writes an informative article for The Guardian Bike Blog about the benefits of cycling whilst pregnant. Our very own Sarah Buck (pictured above) formerly a designer at Cyclodelic before giving birth to her beautiful son Miles cycled throughout her pregnancy and is quoted as saying:

“No one dared tell me not to cycle or they’d have been in trouble. But I felt so comfortable on the bike it was never going to be an issue for me. I was cycling from Camberwell to Hackney, an hour and a half of light-impact exercise a day and really do think it benefited my body and mind. I had a really healthy pregnancy, and as you’re not putting weight on your legs, it’s actually easier than walking.”

  2. To my very pleasant surprise, a fellow cyclist sent me a link to this great post shortly after I announced I was pregnant. I was thrilled to come across Sarah’s story and it brought back fond memories of our times on the bike together back in Canada! When I lived in London, in the late 90’s, I didn’t know ANY other women who cycled, never mind women who rode while pregnant. Glad to know things have changed and thanks for the encouragement to keep riding until my baby is born! Please say hello to Sarah from Lorne & Justine.

    • Hi Lorne & Justine, I will certainly pass on your message to Sarah. I’ve heard some great things about her cycling days in Canada, I’m sure she’ll be thrilled to hear from you and pleased that she can be of inspiration to others. Best of luck with your new baby and keep up the biking! Amy
