Considering swapping your journey to boost your mood and your step count? Here’s how you can do it. 👇

Make it part of your day

Fitting walking or cycling into your day may be easier than you think. 😄

Some journeys could be quicker or just a few minutes longer to walk. Find quick walks between stations or quiet walking routes between key London locations. 🗺️

If you can, get off a stop early to walk the rest of your journey, take a relaxing stroll home, or hop on a cycle and enjoy some exercise on one of our cycle routes.

You’ll see so much more of London, and who knows – you might discover a new way to get to work or find a nice walk to do at the weekend! 👍
