Each year we run Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel and Bike to School week, it's the UK's biggest school cycling, walking and scooting event. We encourage a healthy school run for all our children with one of the national events and competitions for schools.
“Walking, cycling or scooting to school is a fantastic way for families to include activity in their daily lives, and helps to improve both the physical and mental health of children and their parents
As little as 17.5% of children are meeting the recommended daily 60 minutes of physical activity, yet walking, scooting and cycling to school can play a key role in boosting activity levels. Currently, just 2% of children in the UK cycle to school, with the number of children being driven, rising.
