Due to the pandemic, the closure of business activities, public places, fitness and activity centres, and social life, has hampered many aspects of the lives of people, including routine fitness activities of fitness freaks, which has led to various psychological issues and serious fitness and health concerns.
Here are some free activities you can do in York to keep up on your fitness regime:
- Walking around the City Walls. The city walls are 3.4 kilometres long, where you can also enjoy a leisurely coffee or a spot for the perfect lunch break.
- The River Ouse is also a good route as it is a 2km loop from the Millennium Bridge, on traffic free paths and fantastic for a city jog!
- If you’re looking for fresh air and escapism for reality, Yorks cycling routes are the perfect getaway.
- From Lendal Bridge in the center of York, this easy, mostly traffic-free route follows a cycle path north through some stunning meadows to Beningborough Hall. The Farmshop Café serves afternoon tea – an indulgent treat perfect before biking back to the city centre.
