Cycling and Health

Cycling is a healthy activity. Riding a bike - whether for fun, sport or transport - is a healthy way to get around. And improving health is one of the main reasons people try cycling.


Cycling England's cycling and health strategy sets out our plans for this area of work for the next three years, and can be down loaded from this site.

Cycling England is working closely with the Department of Health and other key government departments to ensure that major programmes designed to encourage physical activity, a healthy lifestyle and greater accessibility also include the promotion of cycling - whether for transport or recreation.

Public health specialists with expertise in promoting physical activity have been appointed to advise and assist Cycling England in developing this programme theme.
