Park & strides, extended cycle parks, special walking routes for visitors, and free buses are all part of plans to try to reduce traffic congestion during the upcoming NatWest International Island Games.

The island is going to be at full capacity, with virtually every accommodation bed taken by the thousands of athletes, team officials, and supporters. Reduced speed limit zones of 20mph will be in place around key Games venues to make it safer for everyone, especially pedestrians and cyclists. 

The organisers of the Games are promoting active and alternative travel options to keep the island moving. A free park & stride will be set up in the field at the top of Le Val de Terres for the entire week of the Games. There will also be additional park & strides for the opening ceremony and on the last day, at Ladies College, Sir Charles Frossard House, and Beau Sejour.
