The Big Pedal

22 March 2019

Dear Parents/Carers


Get set… we’re taking part in Sustrans Big Pedal 2019, the UK’s largest inter-school cycling, walking and scooting challenge. The challenge runs for two weeks from Monday, 25 March to Friday, 5 April. It’s free and we would love everyone to be involved.


The details

On each day of the challenge schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils cycling, walking or scooting to school. Every morning the children will be asked how they travelled to school and this will be recorded.


It’s a great way to get more of our pupils travelling actively to school and is a simple way to boost their physical and mental health.


Cycle, walk, scoot and snap to win family prizes

You and your family can also win prizes during Sustrans Big Pedal. Simply post a photo of you and your child cycling, walking or scooting to school on social media during the challenge using #BigPedalWin. To be in with a chance of winning, you’ll need to follow Sustrans on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook  Be sure to check the terms and conditions found on the Big Pedal website prior to entering the competition.


What’s next?

All you need to do is encourage your child(ren) to cycle, walk or scoot to school on as many days as possible during the event, and join them on their way!
