Our work in Wales

In Wales we enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day.

We work with schools, communities, policy makers, workplaces and local authorities so that people are able to choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper journeys, with better places and spaces to move through and live in.

Cyclists on the national Cycle Network in Wales

The National Cycle Network in Wales is series of safe, traffic-free paths and quiet on-road cycling and walking routes, offering many opportunities for travel, discovery and play.

Explore our online map or find your next adventure by browsing walking and cycling routes in Wales.

We also have a selection of free leaflets and maps.

Councils are mapping existing routes and need your input: Are the routes mapped accurately? Do you think they meet standards? Have routes been missed?

Children walking and cycling to school in Wales

We work with many schools throughout Wales, enabling more children to travel to school by bike, scooter or on foot.

We provide information, training and support to pupils, teachers and parents.

Through our community projects we aim to deliver the skills, information and infrastructure needed to empower people in Wales to build more walking and cycling into their everyday journeys.

Our Personalised travel planning has led to an 8% reduction in car trips made by drivers in Cardiff.

We are also engaging with communities to ensure people have access to the safe routes they need to help them walk and cycle more.
