Sustrans Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge inspiring pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school. The event will run for 10 days from 23 April to 4 May 2018 and is open to individual classes as well as whole schools.
What is the challenge?
On each day, schools compete to see who can get as many of their pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. Your school’s best five days will determine your final position, but you can log journeys on all ten days if you wish.
For schools unable to take part in the main event we have a one-day challenge, which can include cycling and scooting activities in the school day as well as on the journey to school.
Fundraising superhero day
To celebrate the finale of the challenge there is also the option to join our superhero fundraiser day. All money raised will help us to enable thousands of children to walk, cycle or scoot every day – making the school run safer and healthier.
Daily prize draws
Schools will be entered into daily prize draws for rewards including bike stunt shows, equipment and storage if over 15% of your school community cycle or scoot on each day of the challenge.
