Join the Devon Summer Tour
The Tour of Britain is returning to the county in September and there's a brand new Love to Ride Devon event to celebrate. Everyone who lives or works in Devon is encouraged to ride a bike – and encourage others to do so – for the Devon Summer Tour between July 16th and August 12th. Cycling improves physical and mental health, reduces pollution and congestion, and makes our communities cleaner, greener and more liveable. Please take one minute to register at lovetoride.net/devon
Think easy changesLeave the car at home. Active travel is a healthier option for you and the environment.
Stand instead of sitting during your day. Try short periods in meetings, at your desk or while on the phone.
Take a walk at lunch time with a colleague. Devon is a great place to be active outdoors.
Be active with housework. You can get a good workout gardening or washing windows.
