Bike to School Week is a week-long event in which participating schools encourage families to cycle or scoot to school. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate cycling and scooting and the positive impact active travel has on children’s health and wellbeing and the environment. Organised by Sustrans and supported by the Bikeability Trust, Bike to School Week celebrates cycling to school and the benefits of travelling actively for children and the environment.
To support schools and families throughout Bike to School Week, there’s a range of resources available. These include:
- tools to tell parents and help them get ready- including a poster, e-flyer and downloadable family guide
- free curriculum-based resources for Early Years through to Key Stage 3
- an Inclusivity Guide to help schools promote cycling and scooting to school for everyone
- get ready resources- a guide and video with simple practices to check a bike is safe to ride
- get active resources- activities to help improve children’s bike and scooter skills
Schools do not have to register to promote Bike to School Week. And families can take part whether their school is promoting Bike to School Week or not.
All families that pledge online to cycle or scoot during Bike to School Week using this form will be entered into a free prize draw to win a Frog bike.
