Introduce yourself…

Hi my name is Ginalyn. I am originally from Philippines and I currently live in Whyalla, South Australia. I came to Australia to study my Masters of Health Science at Western Sydney University in Sydney and moved to South Australia for work. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, playing tennis and badminton, practicing photography, and exploring the city by bike. I also love to travel and I often plan trips with my family and friends. But solo travelling brings me the real adventure and thrill to venture into new places all by myself.

When and how did you get into bike riding?

I learned how to ride a bike when I was 9 and enjoyed riding bicycle ever since. When I moved in a small city here in Whyalla, South Australia I decided to get myself a bike as I wanted to find an activity to do outdoors and I was inspired by the Dutch people wherein they get around town on city bike. I mainly ride for sightseeing and for fitness.

How did you get your hands on a Reid?

It is great way to get around town. Whether I am heading to the local shops to buy bread, milk and flowers or making my way to the beach and cafes. It is a great way to improve my fitness while I exploring my city.

How did you get your hands on a Reid?

I am petite and looking for a bike is quite difficult for me. I was in Adelaide and visited Reid Bike Shop. I saw the Ladies Petite 24″ Vintage Bike and fell in love it. Just perfect for my height. But I ordered it online and chose the lavender color.

Do you have any other future adventures planned?

I would love to bring my bike in Adelaide and try city biking there. It would be a great experience as it is a busier place and mores shops to visit.

Finally, what advice would you give to those who are considering getting into bike riding or perhaps have never tried it before?

Go and get yourself a bike and explore your city. Set your own pace, so whether you’re looking for some leisurely exercise or a way to push yourself to new extremes, bike riding is perfect. Don’t forget to always stay safe on your bike and wear your helmet.
