The Big Pedal is our UK wide inter-school scooting and cycling challenge, where schools compete to try to get the largest percentage of pupils, staff and parents travelling to school by two wheels.
This year’s challenge will be running from March 20th – 31st. It is open to primary and secondary schools who register and then log their data each day. Schools with the highest participation win great prizes.
Schools can choose to enter a 1 or 5 day challenge where their best day or best 5 days out of the two weeks count. On the final day of the challenge we encourage schools to run a Superhero Day, where pupils dress themselves and their bikes as superheroes.
This year’s theme is Around the World in 10 Days and schools will track their progress on a wall chart – register using the link below – learning about the countries and cities they pass through along the way.
Information and registration is at http://bigpedal.org.uk/.
We see the challenge as a great way to get whole school communities excited about active travel and to impact school traffic issues.
