I think her husband is pulling her payamas saying 'I would also take a bike to work but I'm frightened of dogs jumping on me'. Funny how hes happy to let his wife cycle to work but he loves his car. Typical man (I am one by the way)

lol her husband is too scared to join her cycling to work cos he's frightened dogs will bite him. What a wuss.

Good video though, good to see people willing to try alternatives to the car.
