Whether you’re commuting to work, taking the kids to school or popping to the shops, there’s more joy in the journey when you walk or cycle in the West of England.
Not only will walking or cycling boost your mood and help your health, but it will also help to build a cleaner, greener future for the West of England.
We want our region to be more sustainable, and reducing our reliance on cars is key. During lockdown, we saw congestion disappear and air pollution drop by almost half, and a big increase in walking and cycling. If you’re keen to keep up your new habit or hoping to join those who choose to walk or cycle for short journeys, we have plenty of support to help you get active.
The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) is working with our partners across the region to support people to choose walking and cycling for short journeys.
