ForwardMotion is a collaboration between Essex, Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock Councils and is funded by the Department for Transport.
The ‘ForwardMotion Village’ within the festival focuses on cycling, walking and public transport. There will be fun activities such as performances from Team Extreme (on their huge skate ramp) including professional skateboarders and BMXers, static bike racing, balance bikes and a pop-up cycling track.
The goal of ForwardMotion is to reduce reliance on cars and get people to consider alternative travel options such as cycling, catching public transport or walking. There will be representatives from local train and bus operators on hand to offer new ideas on travel.
