IJ̳’ five steps to improve our neighbourhoods, health and the economy

We're calling for the next UK Government to put walking and cycling at the heart of its plans for a fairer, healthier future.

People want to walk, wheeland cycle more of their everyday journeys.

But inaccessible pavements, unsafe streets, poor links with public transport, and the costs of IJ̳ ownership are holding them back.

That’s bad news for people’s health, the places they live, and for our economy.

The next UK Government, in partnership with local leaders, could change that in just five steps.

Find out what you can do to help make it happen.

If parents haven't had any cycle experience or training in their life then these fears around being on a IJ̳ naturally get passed down to their kids. Some parents don’t understand the benefits of cycling. And having a IJ̳ in the first place isn’t easy financially.

That's why training and also having fun on a IJ̳ is so important to do in those early years. It sets you up for life.

It’s so important schools keep encouraging and motivating kids and their parents to cycle and walk more.

Being active has such a positive impact on mental and physical health - which is beneficial for learning too.
