Love London, Walk London logoActive travel (walking and cycling) are key to addressing many of London's issues, including reducing congestion, improving physical and mental health, and revitalising local 'town' centres.

In the run-up to the 2016 Mayoral and Greater London Authority elections, the Ramblers' Love London, Walk London campaign called for the new Mayor to employ a Walking Ambassador. Sadiq Khan's manifesto promised a Pedestrian Champion.

This pledge has been fulfilled by the announcement today of Will Norman, as the Mayor's Walking and Cycling Commissioner. We welcome this appointment and look forward to working with him to improve conditions for all walkers across our great city.
