News — Keeping active
For those of us currently self-isolating and working from home it’s still important to stay active, and maybe even form some new habits! With the roads clear of traffic it’s a great time to dig the bike out of the shed or pull on your walking shoes and get out for some safely distanced exercise.
Living Streets have some advice on how to safely walk outside and keep your mind and body healthy and active, provided you’re not showing any symptoms. A 20 minute walk a day can have huge health benefits.
Cycling UK are offering free 3 months of membership to NHS staff which offers free third-party insurance and legal advice as well as other benefits. With clear roads and advice to avoid public transport, now is a great time to try cycling to work.
Cycling UK are also urging everyone to take advantage of the clear roads and take your bike for commuting or essential journeys, leave public transport for critical workers. Get your daily exercise and reduce risk of contagion at the same time.
