Walk to Work Day 2019: Walks to try in the Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor

5th April 2019

Cambridge and Norwich lead the way in healthy commuting

A Department of Transport report reveals that around 11% of UK adults walk to work and only 4% cycle to work (these figures have remained broadly stable over the past ten years). However, there are wide variations across the country. We’re delighted to report that Norwich leads the way for people walking to work (24.8%) and Cambridge is tops for people cycling to work (32.5%) but there is always scope to do more!

Today marks National Walk to Work Day, and to celebrate we’re encouraging businesses to get out and about in the Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor.

As we’ve discovered this week, walking can be good for your productivity, as well as boosting your health and well-being. If you fancy taking a stroll here are some of the region’s favourite walks and routes.

Join a 'netwalk'

As the name suggests, netwalking is a bit like networking. But instead of standing around drinking coffee and making awkward smalltalk, netwalking allows you to mingle on the move, and enjoy conversation with like-minded folk while out enjoying the countryside.

Here are some of the netwalking initiatives that regularly take place in the Tech Corridor. If you know of a netwalk which isn’t listed here, let us know on Twitter and we’ll add it to our list.

Your favourite walks

We asked businesses in the Tech Corridor to send us their favourite walks to work or walks at work. Where’s your favourite place for walking to work? Tweet us your pictures and join the conversation @TechCorridorUK – using the hashtag #TechCorridorWalks.


If you like to multi-task, you can always combine your walking with some gaming. Gotta catch ’em all.


And if you venture out on a lunchtime walk later, you never know who you might come across:
