It’s walking…but not as we know it…

In many countries people’s activity habits have changed significantly during the lockdowns towards more informal and, often creative, ways.  One of those growing activities has been wild swimming which is growing all across the UK.

Wild swimming has been very popular with the swimming pools closed in the UK

 

We have also seen cycling expanding during the lockdowns when the roads have been, from family cycling to cycling with your dog!  As we demonstrate below you can cycle in many ways and I am sure that we will be seeing more of these innovations and developments continuing when the lockdown in the UK is being eased further.

So, there you have it, there are indeed many ways you can get people to enjoy going for their walks. Off you go!
