Active travel doesn't have to mean lycra!

Making the healthy choice when it comes to your daily commute doesn’t have to mean swapping your office attire for lycra.

Meet the unaware walkers, who engage in active travel without even realising! Walking at their own pace, in their work attire to and from their stations and bus stops. They’re unaware of the health benefits their walk offers and how a few tweaks such as changing into trainers for the walk could unlock greater physical and mental wellbeing.

Combing walking or running with public transport can help reduce the risk of many serious physical and mental illnesses. Our recent research study into the health and wellbeing benefits of a more active first and last mile revealed that incorporating more walking into your commute can offer the ideal way to help meet World Health Organisation guidelines of 30 minutes moderate intensity activity, 5 times per week.
