  1. aLinear regression adjusted for age, sex, ethnicity, education, employment, BMI, household income, housing tenure, household car access and children living at home. In all models maintenance of active travel was set as the reference category. 95%CI: 95% Confidence Intervals; T1 mean: mean at baseline; T2 mean: mean at follow-up; PA: Physical Activity.
