Jeremy Corbyn's object of desire: the perfect bike for commuting

Labour leader and MP for Islington North Jeremy Corbyn picks his ideal bike

Jeremy Corbin

“I use my bike less frequently now that I’m leader of the Labour Party, but I still prefer to cycle whenever I can.

Not only is it free, environmentally friendly and often the fastest way to travel, but it also gives the snappers outside my house a bit of variety.

This aluminium-framed Raleigh Criterium, like my own trusty red Raleigh, is light and therefore fast, but comfortable for longer rides too – I recently rode mine with Olympic gold medallist Sir Bradley Wiggins (shameless namedrop) and it ensured I kept up with him.

This unisex model is a great all-rounder whether you’re a beginner or looking for a new ride, although as I’m a big believer in repairing rather than replacing, I suspect I will have my own long after my leadership.”

My 2016 pledge to women

“I will ensure that gender equality is at the heart of society. Labour’s first majority female Shadow Cabinet is one reflection of this, but we will be reaching out to women, listening and acting to ensure that policy improves lives. Inequality is never acceptable, let’s work together to end it.”
