During the first Covid-19 lockdown there was an increase in the number of people walking, wheeling, cycling and exploring what’s on our doorsteps.
This increase in movement has a variety of benefits from mental health and wellbeing, to family bonding, to supporting local businesses and connecting with the community.
As levels of car use are on the rise and cold weather continues, Transport Scotland, Public Health Scotland, Paths for All, Cycling Scotland, Cycling UK, Sustrans Scotland and Scottish Cycling want to keep the momentum going and encourage people to keep up the good habits through this lockdown and beyond.
The shared digital campaign, #WheelsinMotion, will encourage more people to leave the car at home in favour of walking, wheeling and cycling for essential journeys and exercise, helping Scotland to become a truly #ActiveNation.
Getting out and about locally is positive for our wellbeing and can be a fun opportunity…
