Although it may not seem like it at first there's actually still lots of wildlife to see at this time of year.
So wrap up warm and get out onto the Network for a wintery wildlife hunt. It's a great way to keep kids active and healthy all year round.

Cyclists by the river

Winter can provide a great opportunity to explore picturesque new cycling terrain and discover unique scenery. 
The YHA have an abundance of cycle friendly hostels, conveniently situated along some of our routes, that are perfect for winter cyclists planning longer rides.
