Walking and cycling are low cost, easy ways to get more active and improve your health. They are also the most environmentally friendly way to travel around Leicester and Leicestershire, helping to reduce air pollution and congestion.
The Council also runs reduced cost cycle courses and cycle maintenance courses for local residents. These are a great way of building confidence if you haven’t cycled recently.
