Sustrans Big Pedal 2019

Sustrans Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling, walking and scooting challenge. They aim to inspire pupils, staff and parents to choose human power for their journey to school and are open every single primary and secondary school in the UK.

The Sustrans Big Pedal is from 25 March to 5 April this year and is including walking to school as well as cycling and scooting for the first time. So what do you have to do, and why?

The Challenge – On each of the 10 days, schools will compete to  get as many of their pupils, staff and parents cycling, walking or scooting to school. The best five days will be chosen for each school, but schools can and are encouraged to to all 10 days.

For schools who cannot take part in the whole event, or 5 days, there is a one-day challenge. This will included activities to complete on that one day as well as the journey that pupils, staff and parents take to school.

On the final day of the challenge there is also a superhero fundraising day to celebrate all the hard work, with money raised being used to help thousands of children to walk, cycle or scoot every day.

Prizes – We all need a little incentive some times and sustains know that! If your school has 15% of their community walk, cycle and scoot on a certain day they will be entered into a special prize draw. Prizes will include equipment and accessories for the school to win.
