Walk

                                                 

 

Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to be more active and healthier.  Like other physical activities, walking releases endorphins which improves your mood and reduces stress. It can also help with concentration and walking with friends means you get more time to catch up. Walking is a low emission way to travel and helps reduce your impact on the environment.

 

The 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. Upgrades to Budds Lane and the High Street will improve routes for pedestrians and cyclists making it easier and safer to get about. Other improvements to pedestrian and cycle routes around the town will make it easier to get about and reduce your car use.
