SUSTRANS Big Walk and Wheel
The UK’s largest inter-school cycling, walking, wheeling and scooting challenge.
Get set… we’re taking part in Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel 2022 (the new name for Big Pedal), the UK’s largest inter-school cycling, walking, wheeling and scooting challenge. The challenge runs from 21 March to 1 April.
This week we are encouraging your child(ren) to walk, use a wheelchair, scoot or cycle to school on as many days as possible during the event.
Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel is a great way to build physical activity in children’s daily routine which is important for their physical health and mental wellbeing.
Active school runs also help to reduce congestion and air pollution outside the school gate. A 2021 YouGov study showed nearly half of UK children worry about air pollution near their school. And that children thought active travel was the best away to bring down these pollution levels.
It is lovely to see the amount of bikes and scooters at school today.
