Active travel

Active travel is a way of incorporating physical activity into necessary journeys, so you help your own fitness and the planet at the same time.

Here is a product that will really help you with your active travel intentions. And the short video will make you smile too!

Our recent experience with lock down has shown us how active travel, by walking or cycling, can be an enjoyable experience when the roads feel safer. Cyclists are exposed to less pollution than car drivers or bus passengers, and have the added benefit of keeping fit as they travel to work.

If you are not confident of riding on the roads, Bikeability is a charitable organisation offering training for children and adults. You can find out here about local training on their website.

If cycling doesn’t appeal, could you walk to work? Is there a route that you could take that would go through a park and away from roads, to make the walk more pleasant?
