BIKE TO SCHOOL WEEK

Bike to School Week is dedicated to encouraging more pupils to cycle to school. It is an ideal opportunity for those already cycling to encourage others, and for new cyclists to take to two wheels.

You can organise individual or group activities for maximum involvement and promotion to the whole school community. Older pupils are often keen helpers and can be utilised in many ways, ie parking attendants, breakfast servers.

National Bike Week is sponsored by Team Green Britain (the link to their website can be found on the right). If your school isn’t able to run an activity during Bike to School Week, why not do something during Bike Week.

The Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school. It is organised by Sustrans and funded by the Bike Hub.

On each day of the challenge schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. A school’s best five days will determine their final position, but they can log journeys on all ten days if they wish.

For schools unable to take part in the main challenge we also have a one-day version, which can include cycling and scooting activities in the school day as well as on the journey to school.
