Hull motorists encouraged to walk or cycle as part of World Car Free Day 2021



Motorists across Hull are being encouraged to walk or cycle as part of World Car Free Day 2021.

Every year on 22 September people across the world are encouraged to give up their cars and choose a more active form of travelling.

And with a growing network of more visible and safer cycle lanes across the city, now is the best time to try it.

Multiple studies have shown that cycling is extremely beneficial for boosting the immune system and for improving mental health.

Not only that, but it’s also great for the environment and can make a significant contribution towards cutting carbon emissions.

Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for highways and transport said: “If you need to travel into work and haven’t tried cycling before, then now is the perfect time for you to explore the benefits and possibilities of cycling in Hull.

“We’re experiencing some great weather, we have more segregated cycling routes than ever and we’re an incredibly flat city which is ideal for cycling.

“Our growing network of cycle lanes gives you the opportunity to ride with confidence on protected lanes and routes throughout Hull— whether it’s a quiet back street or green, open space.”

European Mobility Week is an annual initiative of the European Commission for Sustainable Urban Mobility since 2002. It calls on European cities and towns to devote one week to sustainable mobility. It started on September 16 and ends with a Car-Free Day on September 22. Read more here.
