Travelling for health
Do you want to get healthier in 2018 without the gym?
Walking and cycling is one of the easiest ways that individuals can integrate exercise into their lives.
NHS guidelines advise adults to do at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week such as fast walking or cycling.
