Are you concerned about your carbon footprint?
Do you want to walk or cycle more?
If so, then the Walk Score website might be the thing you’ve been looking for.
This nifty little service rates how walking friendly your neighbourhood is.
This isn’t just for our friends in the USA, I put our address in and up we came.
With a Walk Score of 58 out of 100, we’re certainly above the middle zone. In fairness, I think we should score a lot higher – in the 70s at least. There are considerably more amenities within a kilometre or so of our address, but only a smattering appear in the list generated. They even miss the rather large park that is about 500 metres directly to our north of our home, so it needs to be taken with a grain of salt.
Still, it is one of those fun things to do if you’re on the web and want to check it out. Report back on your neighbourhood and we’ll see who scores the highest. The prize for winning? A slimmer waistline. 😉
