Cycling and Walking

Cycling and Walking

The benefits of cycling and walking are numerous. Embracing active travel can bolster your personal health and wellbeing all whilst helping to protect the environment. Luckily in Solihull there are so many opportunities to stay active whilst travelling.

In recent years there has been significant investment in high quality cycling routes across the borough, cycling repair stations and we’ve seen the arrival of the West Midlands cycle hire scheme in Solihull. 

If walking is more your thing, why not take a stroll in one of the 16 parks and green spaces in Solihull to have received a Green Flag Award – an international mark of quality. If you want to get an idea of the bigger picture, take a look at the Solihull Cycling and Walking Strategy to see how it all fits together.

Thinking about how to reduce your carbon footprint as a business? How can you make ‘last mile’ deliveries more sustainable?

As part of Solihull Council’s commitment to active travel; clean air; carbon reduction and congestion relief, we’re launching free of charge electric-assisted cargo-bike trials. It’ll help your business or community organisation understand whether these new forms of transport have the potential to help replace car and van journeys on a daily basis.

If you are interested in loaning the bike or want to find out more information about the trial, please contact the sustainable travel team at
