About Forward Motion

ForwardMotion is a new initiative to encourage people to think differently about the way they commute in and around south Essex.

Are you always short of time? Do you find it difficult to fit regular exercise into your schedule? Swapping the car for a bike on your commute or walking to the local train station builds exercise into your day without you having to make extra time to go to the gym.

The way that you commute affects more than your budget and your time. Evidence shows that cycling can increase concentration, memory and motivation, helping you perform better. And getting out of the car can be a great way to boost your mental health, fight off tiredness and make you more alert.

If you’ve got a long commute, why not let somebody else take the strain? Instead of having to focus on what other drivers are doing and worrying about congestion, travelling by bus or train allows you to spend your commute reading a book, checking your emails, updating your social media or whatever else takes your fancy.

We can help you travel differently by providing personalised travel advice for your journey to and from the office. We can also offer you free cycle training with a qualified instructor if you want to learn how to navigate the roads and beat the traffic.
