groupwalkWalking is simple, free, and one of the easiest ways to become healthier and help improve air quality. In this section we aim to tempt you to leave the car at home and do more walking: you can discover the benefits, find out about local events and activties, join a walking group or sample local walks, rise to a walking challenge or click onto the wider world of walking.


So what are the benefits of walking and how can we reap those benefits?

In short, it's good for your health, wellbeing and the environment!

Why not set yourself a challenge to walk in all your local parks and walking paths?

We are active in promoting more walking. We are leading two walks in the upcoming Bristol Walkfest, and using this to launch our own walks and listings of others.
