Want to be a radical? Go for a walk



Well said

Walking is more dangerous to the established order of things than it is to the pedestrian trying to avoid being run over at a faded zebra crossing. It’s one of a number of antidotes to ignorance, binding us to our environment through the accumulation of local knowledge. (Cars, used largely for local journeys, reduce such knowledge to that of shortcuts and rat runs.)”

Author, Lynsey Hanley, in her commentary, Why it’s good to walk (Guardian).
