The vast majority of South Australian residents (96.3% (95% CI: 95.1 – 97.4%) walk for at least five minutes in a typical week outside their home. This equates to around 1.69 million (95% CI: 1.67 – 1.71 m) people walking every week.
Of those who walked in the previous week and were aged 15 or older 80.2% walked for recreation or exercise.
The National Walking and Cycling Participation Survey provides insight into walking and cycling activity across Australia and is a successor to the National Cycling Participation Survey which was conducted biennially from 2011 to 2019.
The vast majority of Australians (96.7%) walk for at least five minutes in a typical week outside their home. This equates to around 24.47 million people walking every week. On average Australians walk for at least five minutes on 5.3 days, spending a median of 3.5 hours per week walking.
Around 18.2% of Australians rode a bicycle (including e-bicycles) in the previous week and 40.3%
over the previous year. This equates to around 4.62 million Australians riding in a typical week and 10.19 million riding in the past year.
