    Laura McVittie Hi I'm Laura. I work as a full-time Commuter Centre Manager on a leading business park and I have previously worked as a school and workplace travel plan officer at Sunderland South Tyneside Councils so my job involves encouraging people to cycle to/from work. I have also been a cyclist myself since I was very young and often go on weekend bike rides with friends and family. Also my husband doesn’t like cycling so this was an ideal opportunity to find other people to cycle with. I thought that Breeze was ideal for me to do more cycling, encourage others to cycle and do some volunteering.
