The 20 Effect is all about encouraging Liverpool residents to embrace the city’s safer streets and get out there walking and cycling, now that 20mph speed limits have been implemented in residential zones.

Projecting a safer future for Liverpool

Liverpool’s safer 20mph streets are paving the way for a walking and cycling-friendly city. All over the city people are taking to the safer streets, cycle paths, and parks to get from A to B. It’s quick, it’s convenient, and it makes us feel good.

We want everyone to get involved and get out there: walking, cycling, breathing the fresh air and rediscovering our city.

You don’t have to do much – just leave the car at home more often. A journey to or from the city centre, or even just up to the shops, starts with a single step (or pedal…).

If you need a little something to get you started, you can take The 20 Effect pledge. To stay up to date with walking and cycling, and hear plenty of good reasons to get out there, follow The 20 Effect on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. And if you don’t have a bike of your own, you can always try a citybike to get you rolling.
