Get them cycling!

Cycling is the obvious way of keeping elderly people active. Build safe cycling infrastructure so that people of all ages and abilities can cycle for their everyday journeys around their city. NICE evidence and Public Health England both recommend building walking and cycling into one's everyday pattern is the most effective way of building an active, healthy population.
