Walking and cycling

Get active and walk or cycle

Current Welsh Government guidance is to Keep Wales Safe and travel only if your journey’s essential.  

 
Please use public transport if it’s your only option for essential travel and don’t make unnecessary journeys or travel if you have any coronavirus symptoms.


We’re working hard:

  • so key workers can travel to and from work
  • so you can make essential journeys such as for essential shopping or medical needs
  • to keep staff safe

Walk or cycle for short journeys 

Could you walk or cycle instead of using public transport in these difficult times?  It would reduce the pressure on public transport and you’ll get your daily exercise while you’re  travelling. 


Find out more about walking and cycling locally

You can find out more about dedicated walking and cycling routes where you live from your local council’s website or here.


Your local council may also be installing temporary facilities to make it easier to walk and cycle.  You can check what’s happening where you live here


The National Cycle Network

The National Cycle Network is a  UK-wide network of signed paths and routes for walking and cycling.  You can also check whether or not you live near the National Cycle Network here.


Public cycle schemes 

You can hire a cycle from a public cycle scheme, such as Nextbike in Cardiff, if you don’t own one yourself.  Currently they’re only available in some parts of Wales.  Please check what’s available where you live or work.
You can find out more about using a Nextbike safely here.


Nextbike membership is currently free key workers and you can find out more here.


Maintain social distancing and wash your hands

Please try to maintain social distancing (staying 2 metres apart from others) when you’re walking or cycling, for example when approaching or passing other pedestrians or waiting at crossings and traffic lights.


Please wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser before and after cycling.
