St John's CE First School

Sustrans Big Pedal 2018

Get set… we’re taking part in Sustrans Big Pedal 2018, the UK’s largest inter-school scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school.

The challenge runs from 23rd April to 4th May. It’s free to enter and we are encouraging as many people as possible (children and adults) to get on their wheels and get involved!

On each day of the challenge schools compete across the country to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. Our best 5 days will determine our final position in the challenge. We’ll be competing against other schools in Dorset and right across the UK, and if we clock up the most bike and scooter journeys we’ll win!

It’s a great way to get more of our pupils travelling to school on their scooters and ick starting their morning in an active way. We will be competing to become one of the UK’s top schools for two-wheeled journeys and will be in with a chance to win prizes including bike and scooter stunt shows and fantastic cycle and scooter storage.

Cycle, scoot and snap to win family prizes - You and your family can also win prizes during Sustrans Big Pedal. Simply post a photo of you and your child cycling or scooting to school on social media during the challenge using #BigPedalWin. To be in with a chance of winning follow Sustrans on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook  Be sure to check the terms and conditions found on the Big Pedal website prior to entering the competition.

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!
