Cycle

 

Cycling is a low emission, low impact exercise which can reduce stress and is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine. It can often be quicker to cycle than to travel by car for local journeys. Cycling can take a third of the time it takes to walk the same journey.

 


The Green Loop

The new 7km Green Loop has been built to improve cycling and walking links around Bordon. Download the Green Loop Map and view The Green Loop Drone Video for more details. Other improvements to pedestrian and cycle routes around the town will make it easier to get about and reduce your car use.
