Scilly Tops National Exercise Survey

bikes in rackOnce again, islanders have topped a national exercise survey.

Figures released from the Department for Transport claim that 86% of us will walk for at least half an hour each month and 59% of us will ride a bicycle during that period.

Residents of 326 local authority areas across the country were canvassed. The West Midlands area of Sandwell, which includes West Bromwich, was bottom of the table. Just 58% walked for half an hour over an average month and only 5% of their locals cycled.

The national average is 15%.
