How to Walk and cycle three quarters of journeys under five miles: 75% of the time

A UK citizen on average travels nearly 1,500 miles by car on journeys less than 5 miles. If we move these journeys to walking or cycling, we can improve our health, tackle climate change and reduce our costs. To begin walking and cycling journeys, simply get the right equipment (boots, bike, waterproof coat, headphones), then create a new habit.

To begin, plan your journey and make sure you leave enough time, then enjoy the journey instead of rushing, and then replicate this every day. Soon you will experience the health benefits and be relieved of the frustration of being stuck in traffic.
