Abstract

Walking and cycling are frequently promoted as modes of physical activity that are accessible to the whole population and yet little is known about the population prevalence of these activities. A longitudinal study of the social patterning of health in three age cohorts living in the West of Scotland was begun in 1987. Here we describe the walking and cycling activity of the cohorts in 1995-96 when they were interviewed for the third time and were aged about 24, 44 and 64 years, respectively.
