Posted on in Outdoor News

According to the results of a new survey by Aldi, pensioners are eager to try out extreme sports whilst millennials would prefer to be more traditional.

The survey revealed that 53% of pensioners have a desire to try out more extreme activities with 20% wanting to fly a plane, 14% looking to go scuba diving and 9% desperate to try jet skiing or hang gliding.




Millennials, on the other hand, would rather take part in more sedate, traditional hobbies, according to the research.

The survey found the younger generation want to try out gardening (25%), crafting (17%) and caravanning (15%). Sewing (20%) and fishing (17%) were also among the favourites.

It was also revealed that 88% of Brits believe cost is one of the main obstacles in trying out new hobbies.
