Our 12 days of Christmas

We’re getting into the festive mood and so we thought we would bring you our version of the 12 days of Christmas. On the first day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: Don’t hang up your boots for winter. It might be cold this month but there are still plenty of dry, blue-sky days. So lace up those boots and find a lower-level location for a fabulous winter walk. You’ll feel you mood soar being outdoors and the benefits of staying fit though winter will be revealed come the spring and warmer weather. On the second day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: If you can’t ride your bike on icy roads, try something new Give a turbo trainer a go (this gadget converts your road bike into an exercise bike for the home or garage). Or take up mountain biking or cyclocross as a way to stay bike fit but keep off those dodgy roads. On the third day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: Make plans for 2014. get-attachment-16It’s fun when the weather is not so lovely to sit down – hopefully next to a roaring fire – and make a list of all the things you would like to do next year. Maybe you always fancied walking the West Highland Way, or hike a Pilgrimage route in Europe, or cycle the epic C2C route across England. On the fourth day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: Finish off you Christmas gift list We have been writing plenty of kit reviews in 2013, so choose the perfect baselayer, lightweight insulated jackets, walking boots or waterproof jacket for your loved one for Christmas. On the fifth day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: Head to the sun If the UK is in winter, it means there are parts of the world that are basking in sunshine.  Why not nip off for a short winter sun break? We'd love to be walking in Morocco. On the sixth day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: Draw up a top 10 bucket list of walking holidays On the seventh day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: Draw up a top 10 bucket list of cycling holidays On the eighth day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you:  Do something bold in 2014 get-attachment-17If you have never walked a Munro, joined a guided walk, gone climbing, cycled on the road, tried kayaking or given barefoot running a go just decide you’re going to do this in 2014 and book the trip. On the ninth day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: Meet new people Join a walking, cycling or triathlon club. You’ll never be short of a buddy again for weekend pursuits. On the 10th day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: Update your walking app We have blogged about the best apps for walkers. So update yours or choose a new one to try. On the 11th day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: Treat yourself to a new item of outdoors clothing It always feel so wonderful to buy a new pair of boots or a smashing new jacket. Don’t just buy these as gifts for others but treat yourself to something new. On the 12th day of Christmas your walking and cycling holiday specialists said to you: Enjoy Christmas Day We don’t just mean the dinner and gifts. On Christmas morning, while the turkey is in the oven, take advantage of quieter roads and trails for a quick spin on your bike or a stroll with the dog. You’ll return home feeling refreshed and ready to fill up on the big Christmas feast.
