Walking and cycling are easy and accessible forms of activity for most Victorians.
Both are forms of aerobic activity with relatively low risk of muscle or ligament injury.
Walking is the most popular form of recreational activity for Victorians, and cycling is the fourth most popular activity.
But walking and cycling are often overlooked as means of transport.
A significant percentage of car trips in Victoria each day are for short distances, which are easily accessible on foot or by bicycle.
By choosing the active transport option, you can build more activity into your day and reduce your auto transport costs, while contributing to reduced traffic congestion and cleaner air, and experiencing your local community on a whole new level.
