For many shorter journeys, walking can be the best way to get around. It's an underrated form of exercise but walking is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active. It can help you to meet your recommended 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day. Plus, it's free.
We want your views
The walk and cycle Sandwell Facebook page is for pedestrians and cyclists that are interested in discussing their experiences both good and bad when travelling around the borough. This page is where you can air your views about walking and cycling infrastructure and let the council know where you are experiencing problems on your journey.
Planning your journey
You can use a walking journey planner to find the best walking route to your destination. Alternatively, you can use a multimodal journey planner if you are planning to walk as part of a journey using different modes of travel such as bus or train.
