How can we encourage active lifestyles in Britain?

My Great Escape: build your own adventure

A simple open source mapping program that people can use to create their own personalised ‘active adventures’ in and around the city, using OS and other open sourced data layers.


The mapping program will enable users to:

• Create alternative walking and cycling commuter routes

• Create their own adventure maps


People would be supported to use the program as part of outreach projects with school, workplaces and communities to encourage more active travel – these projects would seek to overcome practical barriers around ‘getting into’ cycling through the provision of practical activities such as cycle training and led rides.
