Josephine (left). Courier for two years. Wearing red Gore-Tex jacket, black Trek padded shorts with leggings underneath, Condor glasses, Shimano shoes and Metro T-shirt. "Cycling can be pretty hazardous. I've fractured my hip before but I'm OK now."
Anita (right). Originally from Toronto. Courier for six years. Wearing Metro top, Pinarello hat, Bellwether leggings and Sidi shoes. "It's better when your company supplies clothes because otherwise it's quite expensive. I'm shipping my bike over from Canada as my other one was stolen in Covent Garden."
