Exercise your wheels

CLICK HERE to sign up to the Sustrans 'Outside In' newsletter for challenges, games and activities to keep your family busy during lockdown.

 

Exercise your wheels ...

As part of your exercise, you can include running, walking or cycling. So why not dust off your wheels and give it a go?

Please follow the government guidelines while exercising outdoors at all times.

Cycling, like walking, remains an easy way to stay fit and keep active, as long as government advice on social distancing is followed. Remember to keep 2-3 metres between you and the nearest person. And always follow NHS guidance on hygiene too.

 

Space to Move

Check out Sustran's new interactive map to show where temporary measures such as pop-up cycle lanes and wider footpaths have been put in place to create more space to move during lockdown and beyond. Know of a new measure near you? You can let Sustrans know so they can add it to the map.

 

Lock ... down; Cycle skills ... up!

Bikeability have just launched a great new toolkit: The Bikeability Parent's Handbook has been designed especially for parents, guardians or carers of young cyclists who have just completed their Bikeability training. It's aim is to share with you what they have learnt and to give you the confidence to go cycling with them on roads of cycleways.
