Outdoor Gyms

There are 3 outdoor gyms in Bicester. These have exercise equipment that is completely free for anyone to use. 

No membership fees or contracts to worry about and you can even charge your phone using your own kinetic energy!

Warm up with a jog to your free gym then use each piece of equipment at high intensity for a minute with a 45 second rest between exercises. Complete 3 or 4 circuits, depending on your fitness levels, then warm down with a slow jog home.

Bicester Health Routes

If you live in Bicester, no doubt you’ve seen some blue lines on the pavements in various places. These are Bicester’s Health Routes and each is a 5 KM run through some of the most scenic parts of our town.

All you need to do is find a blue line and follow it until it brings you back to where you started. Not only do you get fit for free but you also get to see parts of Bicester you probably never knew existed!

And there are handy 1KM markings so if you don’t think you can make the full 5KM start small or even walk round as you will do over 7,000 steps which is most of the government’s 10,000 step target.
