An Eye On London

"The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren and to do good is my religion." Thomas Paine

Walking back to fitness…

The reason I chose to walk The London Ring is that I hate gyms. I always have. I don’t like paying for them and I have little in common with the people who go to them.

The idea of walking around London really appealed to me for a number of reasons:

1. It requires no special equipment other than a pair of comfortable boots.

2. It begins the moment you set foot outside your door.

3. You are walking in parts of London that may be totally unfamiliar to you and will surprise you.

4. It’s outside in the fresh air and whatever the weather.

5. You meet some interesting people.

    I know almost nothing about the London Ring, so look forward to finding out more. Do you really need even a pair of boots to walk it?
    Best of luck with your goal of walking back to fitness.

    Cheers. You don’t need boots nor fancy gear but an enjoyment of London and you’ll be fine. Always, however, carry a waterproof or a brolly! You’ll know why.
