One million more adults are now choosing active travel

New Active Lives figures from Sport England show that more communities are embracing the health and physical benefits of active travel than 12 months ago.

One million more adults now walk or cycle for travel at least twice in a 28 day period compared to 2022-23 data.

Chris Boardman, National Active Travel Commissioner, said:

‘Today’s Active Lives figures show that, year-on-year, one million more adults are choosing walking, wheeling and cycling as a way to get from A to B. The nationwide investment that is being put into delivering high-quality routes is paying off.

By enabling more people to build activity into their daily lives we’re making the nation healthier, happier and greener. It’s a win-win for us all.’
