Practical ways of promoting cycling and walking, resulting in less car use, healthier lifestyles and more pleasant places to live.

Our clients want more people to use the bicycle for a greater proportion of their regular journeys. In order to understand how far there is to go on cycling, Richard Armitage visited the Netherlands: in the northern city of Groningen, 60% of journeys are by bicycle. For a pictorial essay of life in Groningen, click the link on the right. Groningen is also very successful economically, culturally and socially.

At Wythenshawe Hospital, we wrote a successful application for DfT Cycle Challenge funds and helped the NHS to introduce secure cycle bins. At the same time, we researched both on- and off-road cycling routes, and these were incorporated in the Greater Manchester Cycling Map, which was made widely available to hospital staff.

At Grand Union Village residential development, we are working with the Community Development Trust and local residents on the shortest and safest walking routes to shops, schools and other facilities. These are being publicised in local newsletters and will be on the Grand Union Village website.
