Families are being invited to take up the Big Pedal 2020 – the UK’s largest cycling, walking and scooting competition for schools, organised by our partner, Sustrans.
This year’s competition is backed up by Dame Sarah Storey, British Paralympian and 35-time world champion in cycling and swimming.
Big Pedal 2020 will run from 22 April to 5 May 2020 and aims to build on the success of 2019 which saw a record 3.8 million journeys made by bike, foot and scooter and over 1,600 schools take part.
Ask your child’s school to sign up to Big Pedal 2020.
The theme of the competition is ‘Travelling around the body’, with pupils tracking their progress on a wall chart, learning about the human body and how active travel benefits their health as they go.
The competition is open to individual classes and year groups as well as whole schools.
For schools unable to take part in the main challenge there is also a one-day version, which can include cycling, walking and scooting activities during the school day as well as on the journey to school.
Schools will be entered into daily prize draws for rewards, including scooters, if more than 15% of a school cycle, walk or scoot on each day of the challenge.
