Walking and cycling in Norfolk

Cycling and walking have always been a great way to get around whilst staying fit and being best for the environment. But during the current COVID-19 crisis it's also the safest way to travel too.

Sometimes you may need to use your car or motorbike to travel, but by making just a few these journeys on foot or by bike we can all make a big difference.

Here are a few useful ways you can start walking and cycling more, to help us all stay safe and active, as well as protect our environment.
