Key information for walking and active travel
From Friday 19th June
From Monday 22nd June
Only travel if your journey is essential, and walk, wheel or cycle where you can. Read guidance on how to travel safely during lockdown.
Stay local, within 5 miles for exercise and outdoor recreation. Try to avoid crowded places and exercise at less busy times where you can.
Always maintain physical distancing of at least 2 metres between different households, and follow strict hygiene guidance.
Be considerate when walking, wheeling or cycling, particularly to people from more vulnerable groups.
For more information on walking, wheeling and cycling during COVID-19, see the Sustrans website.

Find out about the ways Living Streets Scotland gets children walking more, our fab tools for teachers and parents, and our groundbreaking campaign work which underpins our vision of a new walking generation.
Our Walking Connects project aims to support older people to be more active, and to remain socially connected, through walking.
