A new article published by We Are Explorers ‘exploring’ why walking to work makes you a better hiker (and a better person!)
Hiking is absolutely one of the best ways to get into the outdoors. It’s super accessible, requires very little equipment and can be done almost anywhere. You don’t even need to get out of the city to find a great hike. Seriously. Some of Australia’s best hikes are less than a stone’s throw from Sydney’s CBD. (and many Queensland locations as well (QORF))
But if you really want to stretch your legs and tackle the big multi-day hikes out there, you might want to get a few extra kilometres under your belt. There’s no better way to rack up the kms than by adding a few to your morning commute. It’s way easier than you might think, just park a bit further away, get off a stop earlier, or walk the whole way.
Whichever way you go about it, here are five reasons why walking to work will make you a better hiker, and a better person.
So there you go, told you walking to work could make you a better person. Pretty soon you’ll be hiking 20km to work each day, packing your bag like a boss, feeling great, have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the city and have a healthy savings account ready to pull the trigger on an epic, adventurous, multi-day hike.
You’ll also have made a big dent in your carbon footprint. Way to go friend.
