The National Cycle Network is a series of traffic-free paths and quiet on-road cycling and walking routes, offering opportunities for everyday travel, discovery and play.
The National Cycle Network in Wales offers many opportunities for travel, discovery and play.
Improving connections between rural communities and the National Cycle Network is vital to local economic development, health and wellbeing.
The Linking Up project aims to improve the links between the existing National Cycle Network and 8 rural communities across Wales. These new links will provide opportunities for local people to access jobs, services and tourist destinations using active transport.
We work with schools throughout Wales, enabling more children to travel to school by bike, scooter and on foot.
The Active Travel School Award: Accreditation that guides schools through the key steps for increasing and sustaining the number of pupils travelling to school actively.
The Big Shift Cymru: Free online challenge for schools, designed to motivate the school community in Wales to travel more actively.
We’re lucky to have 350 people volunteering with us across Wales, supporting our work, looking after the Network and raising awareness of the brilliant routes that we have here.Volunteer with Sustrans
