On the Move

After five years of living in West London, I'm on the move. I'm packing up my trainers, bikes and race souvenirs and taking them to Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. There, I'll have more storage for Lycra, more room for foam rollers and more space to swing a downward dog. I'm excited!

But after years of seeking out the best local swimming pool, triathlon club and run routes, I have to start all over again in my new area. Luckily for me, there's a whole website designed exactly for this purpose. Spogo.co.uk was developed by ukactive using a Sport England lottery grant, to encourage people all over the country to get moving. At a time when the nation is becoming unhealthier and more obese, it's a welcome tool that makes finding the perfect class as easy as entering your postcode. And with over 112,000 listed venues, clubs and classes, it's sure to have enough activities to keep even me occupied for months!

At a glance, it looks like spogo will have me sailing and swimming in the local lake, playing two types of tennis (lawn and table) with Welwyn Garden City clubs and speedily cycling to the town's ski centre...Yes, I think I'll be happy here.
