Winter walks and rides

Winter walks and rides

It’s fair to say that 2020 has been a difficult year, with many of us hoping for better times in 2021. If you have a bit of time off around the Christmas period, why not try blowing the cobwebs off, and getting out and about by foot, or on your bike?

Walking and cycling can do wonders for your physical and mental health, and in Nottinghamshire, there’s lots of great countryside to explore. You can lose weight, get fitter and healthier for free, and get into a good habit for the New Year.

Our county’s nature reserves and green spaces cover more than 4,500 acres, with a network of more than 4,000 public footpaths, byways and bridleways, excellent for dog walking, or simply enjoying the countryside with your family.

Spotting birds, mammals and insects can be a great activity to enjoy with young children, to help them to learn more about local wildlife.

If it’s cycling that you’re in to, there’s more than 550 miles of countryside and urban cycle routes.
