Sustrans Winter Appeal

Sustrans Winter Appeal

Around 90% of children in the UK don’t get enough exercise, and it’s affecting their ability to focus on school and putting them at serious risk of poor health as they grow up.

When children have access to the training and equipment they need to learn to ride a bike, it can empower them with confidence, perseverance and independence – vital skills they will carry with them for the rest of their life.

Will you give now to help start a cycle of good for more children and young people?

You could help to provide more of Sustrans’ in-school training sessions, along with the essential equipment needed, to help teach children to ride a bike safely – starting a life-long, life-changing cycle of good.

Here’s how your support this Christmas could make a difference:

£20 could pay for a new balance bike to help a child learn to cycle – because from wobbly starts do skilled cyclists grow…

£45 could fund a training session for teachers to use bikes with their students – leading to lessons that everyone looks forward to!

£60 could pay for two children to learn to ride a bike. One of the best gifts they’ll ever receive - and one they’ll never forget!

Your support this Christmas could help to start the cycle for many more children across the UK – helping them to ride safely into a happier and healthier 2023.

Walking and Cycling Index

Walking and Cycling Index

The Walking and Cycling Index supports leaders of cities and towns to understand and improve walking, wheeling and cycling across the UK and Ireland.

It provides high-quality evidence to help bring our neighbourhoods back to life and ensure walking and cycling are attractive and accessible for everyone.

What is The Walking and Cycling Index?

The Walking and Cycling Index is the new name for 'Bike Life'.

It's the biggest ever survey of walking, wheeling and cycling in 18 urban areas across the UK and Ireland.

And this is the first year walking and wheeling has been included.

Each city reports on the progress made towards making walking, wheeling and cycling more attractive, everyday ways to travel.

Since our first reports in 2015, this data has informed policy decisions, justified investment and enabled cities to develop more ambitious action plans for walking, wheeling and cycling.
