Here’s how you can do it. ๐Ÿ‘‡

Make it part of your day

Fitting walking or cycling into your day may be easier than you think. ๐Ÿ˜„

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.

Youโ€™ll see so much more of London, and who knows โ€“ you might discover a new way to get to work or find a nice walk to do at the weekend! ๐Ÿ‘
