Get set… we’re taking part in the Big Pedal 2014, a giant inter-school cycling and scooting competition encouraging children, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their daily commute!
The event is powered by Sustrans (sustrans.org.uk), funded by the Bike Hub (bikehub.co.uk), and it’s happening from 3 to 14 March. It’s totally FREE to enter, and we’d love everyone to be involved.
Each day there is a Sustrans wheelie character to collect and add to our Big Pedal wallchart, and the more people who cycle and scoot, the more powerful our wheelies will be. We want to fill our wallchart with as many superhero wheelies as possible. 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’ve signed up
We think it’s a fantastic way to get more of our pupils on their bikes and scooters and have fun getting to school. And it’ll be great to compete to become one of the UK’s top schools for two-wheeled journeys, not to mention our chance to win some brilliant prizes. We think you’ll enjoy less congestion outside our school gates too!
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.
Each class will have it's own area in the quad near the bike shed.
Please ensure children's bikes are stacked neatly.
Don't forget, parents who travel by bike will get counted too!
Enjoy the ride!
