Humans walk. This basic biological fact is neglected at our peril. With all our technology and urban artefacts if we do not build walking into our daily lives and our cities’ infrastructure, then we will create stunted, unhealthy lives and bad cities. This chapter will try to give an overview of walking and cities based on this fundamental assumption. It will try to do this from a historical perspective and then from recent trends to speculate on how walking is once again emerging as a vital part of city planning.
