Paralympic Games placed such an empha- sis on encouraging walking and cycling and ensuring a long-term legacy,” said London 2012.


“Lessons learned will be passed onto future Games and other large scale sport- ing events and there is a huge opportuni- ty to secure good provision for walking and cycling in the Olympic Park post Games,” it added.


The programme helped London 2012 become the most sustainable games to date and continues


to provide cities


Completed in October 2011, the routes were collectively known as the 2012 Games Walking and Cycling Routes and formed the main spectator routes used by people walking and cycling to the Olympic Park and River Zone venues during the Games.


And with legacy in mind, the routes were designed to provide enjoyable and useful travel options for years to come.

Commenting prior to the games, Defra said: “By changing the behaviour of spectators at the Games to more sustain- able modes of travel, London 2012 will provide a significant boost to long-term behaviour change in London, as well as for international spectators.” Commission for a Sustainable London 2012 issued a statement on 4 July enti- tled: ‘Better provision for walkers and cyclists ‘icing on the cake’ in which it said: “By encouraging and supporting


people who want to travel by green- er and more healthy means, LOCOG, TfL and the ODA are contributing to a long term legacy of changing behaviour around transport and encouraging the public to become more active.”


JUDGES COMMENTS: This initiative went beyond simply ticking the boxes. They engaged with cyclists and addressed barriers to adoption, including having mechanics on the parks to fix punctures – a great way to encourage legacy for the future
