Formerly known as Bike Life, this is the UK's biggest ever study of walking, wheeling and cycling.
Every year, walking and cycling in Liverpool City Region leads to:
During lockdown I tried cycling again because the roads were quieter. I couldn’t believe how good it made me feel mentally and physically.
Cycling helped eliminate my symptoms of anxiety and my blood pressure stabilised.
My daughter has also taken up cycling. She has Global Developmental Delay and learning difficulties. She finds it difficult to walk but much easier to cycle. I often ride on the road and she’ll ride on the pavement near me.
Physically, it’s helped her mobility and she is more active.
It’s also given her a sense of freedom and independence.
The report shows that 69% of people in the Liverpool City Region support the creation of more low-traffic neighbourhoods.
The survey results also show that more people in the region walk or wheel five days a week than use any other form of transport.
52% of people walk, wheel or cycle at least five or more days each week, compared to 46% who use a car and 10% who use public transport.
