Walkers 'can enjoy the outdoors in all seasons'
Bookmark and Share
Outdoor enthusiasts can lace up their walking boots and enjoy the countryside at any time of year, it has been claimed.

Des De Moor, senior everyday walking officer at the Ramblers, said that while spring and autumn are the two seasons favoured most due to their temperate climate, there is plenty of fun to be had when the weather is hot or cold.

"Every season has something different to offer walkers, from getting out to enjoy the spring blossoms, taking autumn wanders in your local woodland, or a winter stroll in snow-covered surroundings," he stated.

Mr De Moor added that going out in the rain can be fun as well, provided people have waterproof jackets and other essential items to protect them from the downpour.

A new study from McGill and Concordia universities, published in the journal Environment and Behaviour, found that pedestrians in nine cities around the world are less likely to walk when temperatures dip below zero, or when there is too much rain or too much snow.
