Dermatologist cycling to work

For the last 3 years I have transformed my commute to the dermatology department at Salford Royal and the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. I never realized how much green space was near me in North Manchester where I live. Just one mile from my house is Drinkwater park and the Outwood trail. I try to use the cycle paths there everyday.

When I arrive at my dermatology clinic I have a quick shower and I am ready and focussed to start my day. This has made me more productive  and this additional interest in a more active lifestyle has formed new friendships. At weekends, weather and family permitting I try to go on a longer ride. Indeed again green space is literally on my door-step. There are some great road routes to Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire, via Backup and Ramsbottom. In other directions I can get to Bolton, Horwich and Rivington within an hour.

There are quite a few cycling dermatologists across the country and we have even formed a starve group with 20 members.

I find cycling to work along the trails near me a perfect way to start the day. It lifts my mood, de-stresses me and also improves my health and fitness at the same time. My dermatology patients are probably getting used to me going on about how much cycling has changed my life. I recommend it to my patients as often as I can. This year I have cycled 6000kms to date ( October) and I have cycled coast to coast from Whitehaven to Sunderland on my mountain bike. (below)

So go on change your life for the better…. go ride.
