About us

Sustrans is the charity making it easier for people to walk and cycle.

We connect people and places, create liveable neighbourhoods, transform the school run and deliver a happier, healthier commute. By choosing to buy products from our shop you are supporting our charitable work.

As a charity we work in lots of different areas: we open new routes on the National Cycle Network and maintain many of the existing ones, we work with schools to help children cycle and scooter to school, we champion wildlife on our off-road routes and we work with communities to transform their neighbourhoods into places that are safer to play in and easier to travel through on foot and by bike.

We have a dedicated in-house mapping team. We work with our expert cartographers, surveyors, designers, and GIS (geographic information system) professionals to design and make our own custom maps. They are responsible for the high-quality Sustrans brand maps and guides that you can find in our shop. These include our regional cycle map series, which now covers the whole of the UK, and our challenge route maps and guides, which help you explore exciting, long-distance routes on the National Cycle Network.
