What is Walking the City week – and how can you get involved?
Guardian Cities wants to hear your experiences of urban walking – good and bad. What’s your favourite route and why? What delights or frustrates you? Tell us in the form below
As cities around the world mark World Car-Free Day this weekend and next by closing their central streets to cars, at Guardian Cities we’re celebrating by taking a look at the joys (and trials) of urban walking.
First up are the joys: the US humourist and writer David Sedaris tells us about his love of walking in cities from Raleigh to Reykjavik, Will Self explains what he learns from perambulations in London, and we’ll hear from Fran Lebowitz in New York, Helen Garner in Melbourne, “natural navigator” Tristan Gooley in Portsmouth and writers on cities as different as Delhi and Newcastle, Cairo and Wellington.
