We have recently published a new Evidence Brief:
Walking & Cycling for Transport
How promoting active travel can help meet the physical activity challenge
It is well established that many people are not spending enough time being physically active and that this can contribute to serious health problems. Given the time people spend travelling to work and other destinations, encouraging active travel is a promising way of meeting this challenge. It also has the potential to deliver environmental and economic benefits.
