About the campaign

Walk it. Ride it. is a city-wide movement towards healthier, greener travel in Leeds. We’re coming out of lockdown, so now is a great time to rethink travel and find new ways to arrive happier and healthier. We are asking people across Leeds to make one small change to a weekly journey, to leave the car at home and walk, cycle, or use the bus instead. Every action counts. Your small change could add up to make a big difference to your life and the city we live in. Whether the school run, a local shopping trip, visits to the park, or building healthier travel into your working week, there are lots of opportunities to walk it or ride it and feel much better for it.
