Active Travel

It is well documented that we could all benefit from being more active. Does the commute provide a great opportunity for you to fit some physical activity into your daily routine?

Walking, cycling, running or scooting the commute doesn’t work for everyone, but if it could work for you, there are some obvious benefits that you could be missing out on. Here are just a few examples of why you should get active:

  • Physical activity is proven to improve our health;
  • Active travel options are considerably cheaper than the alternatives;
  • The use of active travel options produces no CO2, helping you to do your bit for the environment.

Below we have provided links to a wide range of information and support available, to help encourage and support active travel. Should you have any further questions or suggestions, please not hesitate to contact us.

Scooting is rapidly increasing in popularity with adults as a fun, speedy alternative way to travel. Why not turn a 20-minute walk into a speedy 6-minute scoot? Scooting is a quick, healthy, fun way to get around and could be perfect for a short commute, or a trip to the shops at lunch time.

What’s even better, is that as a ParkLife member you can receive a 15% discount on the cost of an adult scooter from the UKs leading brand, Micro Scooters UK. They offer an impressive range of adult models with a host of features making them easy and practical to use. For more information and to take advantage of the offer, follow the link below:
