Bird watch on your bike

We’ve said it before: nature and health go hand in hand. What better excuse to get out in nature and get plenty of exercise!

Do you like looking for birds? Love riding your bike? That’s brilliant because these two activities are made for each other. Hop in the saddle and see what you can spot this summer!!

Bird watching by bicycle is a great way to get outside, enjoy nature and get plenty of exercise! If you’re a budding birder, cycling is a fun, easy and environmentally-friendly way to get around and see more species. If you’re really big on biking, spotting birds as you fly along is just a beautiful bonus!

Biking in nature

You could simply pedal around your local patch or bike it to your nearest nature reserve (some of which you can cycle through too). The UK’s National Cycle Network includes tons of traffic-free – and wildlife-packed – trails to explore.

Grab your bike and head for the trees with a trusty pair of binoculars and see what you can find flitting through the trees. Cycling is a fun and environmentally friendly way to get out and see more species.
