Over 100 MPs elected to the new parliament have signed the pledge produced by the Ramblers to encourage more walking, the organisation has noted.
A total of 115 of the candidates who signed the paper will be sat in Westminster and this tally includes two party leaders, Liberal Democart Nick Clegg and the Greens' Caroline Lucas.
The pledge includes putting walkers "at the top of the transport hierarchy", investing in schemes to get everyone walking and encouraging the creation of more green spaces in urban areas.
Ramblers' campaign officer Rachel Alcock said the election result is good news for those who like to go walking
She added: "Whatever the colour of the future government, the Ramblers look forward to working closely with decision makers; nationally and at grass roots level."
Nick Clegg's seat of Sheffield Hallam lies close to the Go Outdoors store in the city and encroaches on the Peak District National Park, while Caroline Lucas became the first ever Green Party MP in Brighton Pavilion, close to the new South Downs National Park.
