Sustrans is the charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle. We connect people and places, create liveable neighbourhoods, transform the school run and deliver a happier, healthier commute.
We are engineers and educators, experts and advocates who work in partnership, bringing people together to find the right solutions. We make the case for walking and cycling by using robust evidence and showing what can be done. We are grounded in communities and believe that grassroots support combined with political leadership drives real change, fast.
We are custodian of the National Cycle Network (NCN), a national asset on a local scale which comprises of 16,000 miles of paths for walking and cycling. The NCN comes within a mile of where over half the UK population lives, and passes through all National Parks and the majority of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
