Janet Simms was the first staff member to get a bike through the Praxis Care Cycle to Work Scheme.
Janet is the co-ordinator of the Young People’s Befriending Service in Antrim and has held this post for nine years. Her job is to recruit and train Volunteers and match them up with young people leaving the care system.
Annually Janet does the biggest cycle event in Northern Ireland ‘Lap The Lough’ held on the last Sunday of August, which is a cycle ride around Lough Neagh totalling 87 miles and she was interested in the scheme as she could get a good value bicycle whilst improving her general fitness.
