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 from 25 March to 5 April. It’s free and we would love everyone to be involved.
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.
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.
The Golden Ticket: For each active journey to school, a pupil will receive a raffle number. A ticket will be picked at random from each school, and entered into the final interschool prize draw. The overall winner of the raffle will receive a shiny new Bike just the right size for them.
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 instagram.com/sustrans, Twitter twitter.com/sustrans or Facebook facebook.com/Sustrans. Be sure to check the terms and conditions found on the Big Pedal website prior to entering the competition.
