The Beat the Street walking and cycling game is coming to Lambeth, with the free game taking place for six weeks in the summer and being open to all Lambeth residents.
A popular interactive game that helps whole communities get active, Beat the Street was created by GP Dr William Bird to encourage people to explore their local areas and to walk, cycle and roll in a fun competition. Cllr Donatus Anyanwu, Lambeth’s Cabinet member for Stronger Communities, Leisure and Sports, said: “We are excited to be bringing Beat the Street to Lambeth. It’s free to take part in and it’s open to everyone regardless of age, ability or background. “It’s an inclusive and compelling game that encourages you to exercise in a fun way with friends and family, plus it’s a great way of getting to know your local area.” The game has been played by more than 1.5m people in more than 120 locations in the UK and beyond and is designed to get communities moving by helping people to make small changes, such as walking or cycling to school every day.
Beat the Street not only has a significant impact on increasing low levels of physical activity amongst adults and children, but also helps reduce congestion, improves air quality, and helps friends and families spend time in green spaces together.
The game is open to anyone of any age who would like to take part and takes place in Lambeth from Wednesday, 22nd June until Wednesday, 3rd August.
