Cycling and Walking

Cycling and Walking

There are some fantastic benefits to travelling by bike or foot, from being fun and saving you money, to lowering your carbon footprint and helping the environment. This page contains some helpful information should you choose to walk or cycle part or whole of your journey.


Sustrans is the leading sustainable transport charity in the UK, providing information on how to travel by bike or on foot as well as working to improve infrastructure such as the National Cycle Network, to enable people to travel in more sustainable ways. You can visit the Sustrans website here.
