The Big Pedal 2015

2nd - 20th March, 2015

Get set… we’re taking part in The Big Pedal 2015, the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school.
Powered by Sustrans and funded by the Bike Hub, the challenge runs from 2 to 20 March. It’s free to enter 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, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. Our best 10 days will determine our final position in the challenge. We’ll be competing against other schools right across the UK, and if we clock up the most bike and scooter journeys we’ll win!
Why we’re taking part
It’s a great way to get more of our pupils travelling to school on their bikes and scooters. We will be competing to become one of the UK’s top schools for two-wheeled journeys and will be in with a chance to win prizes including bike and scooter stunt shows, exciting days out with the YHA and fantastic cycle and scooter storage.
Journeys made by parents, guardians and siblings, known as supporter journeys, are also eligible for prizes. Schools with the most supporter journeys will be entered in to a prize draw to win one of 10 family passes from The National Trust. There is also a prize draw to win a family cycling holiday from Saddle Skedaddle. Enter the competition at bigpedal.org.uk.  
What’s next?
All you need to do is encourage your child(ren) to cycle or scoot to school every day during the event, and join them on their way – parent and sibling journeys count too!
