They also offer cycling routes to download on their website, as well as advice for the best places to go if you're into mountain biking, or just want a leisurely ride.
Get Active at Home
According to Sport England research, the majority of physically active adults in England managed to maintain their habits despite the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. However, the pandemic and associated restrictions have had a significant impact on the way we engage in physical activity, with many of us choosing to get active from our own homes.
During this time, WASP worked with local partners to produce activity videos you can do at home, and put together a range of resources to inspire you to stay in and work out.
Despite the majority of outdoor and indoor leisure facilities re-opening, we understand that you may still like to exercise at home. Find videos and resources to support you to do so on the page below.
