Get set… we’re taking part in The Big Pedal 2019, 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.
The challenge runs from 25th March to 29th March 2019. It’s free to enter and we would love everyone to be involved.
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. 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 and fantastic cycle and scooter storage.
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!

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
Enjoy the ride!
