Tell us what you think

We are committed to enabling the best walking and cycling opportunities for everyone who lives in, works in, or visits North Lincolnshire. We want to make sure that walking and cycling is safe, helps everyone be well, and means that we are all better connected.

For the survey we would like you think about existing walking and cycling routes, and how well they meet your needs or how we can make them better. We would also like you to think about what support you may need to start, or become, more involved in walking and cycling in the future.

Below is a link to a map of North Lincolnshire’s current walking and cycling routes and the proposed routes.  There is also information about each route in the drop-down section below. Click on each title that is a link to the location of the route on the map.

On the map you will see the various routes are colour coded. Use the menu at the side of the map to turn on or off the different options to show all routes, current walking or cycling routes and proposed walking and cycling routes. Click on a number on the map to read the details for that particular route. You can zoom in on the map to see further details too.

Once you have looked at the map, please complete our survey.
