A WALKER is streets ahead of the rest after roaming every road in his home city.
Simon Kosciow spent nearly a year covering all 4,669 of them in Bristol.
His weekend wanderings covered 1,941.87 miles.
The dad of one started his treks in September last year and recently finished in Alma Vale Road, Clifton — the street where he was born.
Simon, a night shift worker, said: “It gives it a lovely cyclical ending to my Bristol adventure.
“I started with local streets then later on during the year went further afield.

“Walking helped me get out of the house, in a time when you just couldn’t get out.
“It helped massively and set me a goal that I could focus on.”
Simon, 55, walked between four and 20 miles each time and would get his wife to pick him up when done. He used mapping app Strava and marked off each street on an Ordnance Survey map.
Simon previously set out to walk streets alphabetically and went North to South from Severn Beach to Whitchurch, and East to West from Fishponds to Avonmouth.

He said: “I walked silly things like every sports ground and cricket ground.
“I love challenges, but was running out of ideas and I have always said I’ve wanted to walk the streets in Bristol.”
