To get away from noisy streets and enjoy the canals, Mike Bandar, a 23 year old entrepreneur from Birmingham now kayaks to work every day.
Mike began kayaking as a 30 day challenge, but now plans to continue for as long as possible.
Describing his commute to work he says it is probably one of the best ways to travel in the city and utilise the vast canal network.
“Initially I was nervous I would flip over and fall into the water, but now I seem to be doing fine. I really enjoy my journey to work and the tranquillity of the water”
Every day he kayaks from his house in the Jewellery Quarters to his office in the Birmingham Science Park and has been able to cut down his journey time significantly.
