Formerly known as Bike Life, this is the UK's biggest ever study of walking, wheeling and cycling.
Every year, walking and cycling in Greater Cambridge results in:
I live in Meldreth and walk to work at Melbourn Science Park. This is an enjoyable and mostly traffic-free commute across fields and quiet paths. It would be great if the Meads was lit as people tend to avoid this path at night, although in the daylight it’s an enjoyable cut through.
We are really lucky to have well signposted public footpaths in and around Melbourn, as well as the regular paths.They made such a difference when I was training for a walking marathon with a friend recently. We saw some beautiful areas in small local villages that we never knew existed!
The main reason I walk every day is to keep my activity level up and on a good day it only takes 15 minutes more to walk!
Cycling remains a very popular way to travel with nearly half (45%) of all residents riding a bike at least once a week.
And more than six out of ten (65%) residents believe it’s a good area to cycle in.
However, participation in walking and wheeling is not equal.
Of those that do cycle at least once a week, more men (50%) are cycling than women (40%) and more non-disabled people (49%) are cycling than disabled people (29%).
