Active Travel – Community

Active Travel – Community

Active travel is a great way of building physical activity into our everyday life. Cycling and walking to work has a positive impact on our physical and mental health, our productivity levels and on the environment. Evidence suggests that switching to active travel instead of short motor vehicle trips could save £17bn in NHS costs over a 20-year period!

Physically active workers on average take 27% fewer sick days.
