Find your feet on a walking adventure

Each year millions of people get outdoors and enjoy the National Cycle Network. But it might be surprising to hear that the majority of people on the routes will enjoy them by foot.

Traffic-free paths provide a safe and memorable way to explore our cities, towns and countryside and there really is no easier everyday adventure than a leisurely amble on your local route.
