The #BigPedal

  • 2 min read

Did you know the school run is a major source of congestion during the morning rush hour, with as many as one in five cars on the road taking children to school? Childhood obesity is at record levels, with only one in four 11 year olds achieving the recommended levels of physical activity, One of the easiest ways to overcome these challenges is by incorporating physical activity into the school run. Which is lucky our friends @Sustransare around. Their mission is to make smarter travel choices possible, desirable and inevitable. Sustrans are a leading UK charity enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day. They work with families, communities, policy-makers and partner organisations so that people are able to choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper journeys, with better places and spaces to move through and live in. It’s time we all began making smarter travel choices.

About the Big Pedal in 2016

The Big Pedal is Sustrans’ inter-school cycling and scooting challenge. Each spring, schools compete to see who can get the most pupils, families and staff members to arrive by bike and scooter. Greater numbers of participants increase their chances of winning prizes for their school. The 2016 challenge ran from 18 to 29 April and was open to individual classes as well as whole schools. As well as the usual points collected by scooting, cycling or walking to school in this particular year there was a superhero fundraising day to celebrate the finale of the challenge. All schools were entered into daily prize draws for rewards including bike and scooter stunt shows, equipment and storage if over 15% of your school cycle or scoot on each day of the challenge.
