No regrets! Pandemic purchases that made us happy
Tue, Nov 30, 2021
Co-founder of Springboard Tom Oakley says his lockdown purchase was a great help for body and mind. The dad, aged in his 40s, bought a static bike and ended up making new friends near his Cambridge home.
He was keen to exercise during lockdown, but walking was not enough, and an old injury ruled out running. He admits that his other passion - inline-skating - has its limitations.
"You can only do it when the ground is bone dry, and there are not many other middle aged men who skate to make it social," he says.
