Those boots were made for walking... on the scenic route

Why avoiding busy roads helps you

66% of all journeys are less than 5 miles, yet just 10 minutes of walking goes a long way towards keeping you healthy. It gets your blood pumping, reduces stress levels and your risk of heart disease.

Air quality is a very localised issue and is usually at its worst along or near to major roads, especially those that suffer from congestion. Why not walk part of the way and get to work refreshed and ready for the day?
