John Uings' motorcycle insurance brokers Bennetts led the way on National Ride To Work Day recently, which called for people to commute by motorcycle.

John often rides to work on his 550cc Yamaha Virago, having rekindled his teenage love-affair with motorbikes after more than 30 years out of the saddle.

He said: "If more people took the opportunity to come to work by bike, then the morning battle on the roads would no longer be a problem."
