About the speaker

Dame Sarah Storey is Britain’s most successful female Paralympian, with 14 gold medals to her name in both cycling and swimming and more than 30 World Championship titles.

In April 2019, Dame Sarah was appointed as Active Travel Commissioner for the Sheffield City Region, a role which involves working alongside Mayor Dan Jarvis to create a region in which more people travel on foot, by bike or by public transport.

Dame Sarah has set out four pledges which will define her work as Active Travel Commissioner. These are: being led by communities; enabling walking and cycling rather than encouraging it; requiring infrastructure to meet or exceed requirements; and requiring infrastructure to be accessible for all.

A passionate advocate of walking and cycling, Dame Sarah is determined to inspire a new way of thinking about travelling by bike or on foot in the region. Through listening to communities and speaking to politicians, she aims to enable more people to choose to leave the car at home and travel in a way which is healthy for body, mind and the environment.
