Choose How You Move

Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council

The Choose How You Move website is a partnership project between Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council, funded by the Department for Transport. The website is primarily a one-stop shop for travel information in Leicester and Leicestershire and which also lists a range of group walks and cycle rides to encourage people to step/cycle out and discover the city on foot or by bike. Walks vary from social to specialist themes, such as history and wildlife walks. The programme changes regularly so check the website for all up to date walk details.
