Take part in Big Pedal 2019

Posted on in Outdoor News

Take part in the UK's biggest cycling, walking and scooting school challenge.

Families are invited to take part in the Big Pedal 2019!

Big Pedal 2019, supported by Angellica Bell, British television, radio presenter and cycling advocate, is a great way to encourage young people from across the UK to travel by bike, foot or scooter to and from school.

Big Pedal 2019 Organised by Sustrans, the competition will run from Monday the 25th of March to Friday the 5th of April.

Across the 10 days, participating primary and secondary schools will compete to make the most journeys by bike, foot or scooter.

Alongside this great competition and for the first time ever, dozens of schools across the UK will be closing the road out the school gates to motor vehicles. This will not only limit the volume of traffic but help to reduce air pollution all while creating an environment in which cycling and walking are safe and enjoyable.

 

"The Big Pedal may only run for two weeks but can leave a lasting effect on the way children travel to school."

Xavier Brice, Sustrans CEO

"I hope as many schools as possible sign up for the challenge and inspire children and families across the UK to get on their feet, scooter or bike."

Angellica Bell

 

This year's competition looks to build upon the success of 2019 which saw over 1,300 schools register to take part, with teachers, parents, siblings and school children making more than a million journeys to school by bike or scooter.
