Walking

Share this page

Like cycling, walking is a great way of helping to keep fit. The additional activity contributes towards a healthier more active lifestyle, helps to reduce pollution and traffic congestion, gives your more time to take in the scenery, have a chat with friends or colleagues along the way and helps reduce stress. When compared to other modes of transport, walking is a no cost alternative so helps you save money.

Walking to and from work and for short journeys is like cycling, a great way of helping to keep fit as the increased activity contributes toward a healthier lifestyle.
