Bike to School Week

Bike to School Week 2014 runs between 9-13 June (14-22 in Northern Ireland) and is an opportunity to celebrate all the fantastic things schools have achieved throughout the UK to encourage cycling all year round.

This year we are delighted to be supported by Halfords who are running a competition for primary schools to design a cycling jersey - four schools will win £2,000 worth of Halfords gear, with £500 for four runners-up. They also have free bike maintenance workshops available for older primary school pupils. Halfords logo

We have Welsh translations for this template, as well as the competition and workshop details. 

In the lead up to Bike to School Week, every primary school in the UK will receive a booklet of all the ways Sustrans can support them to promote cycling, walking and scooting.

You can download further copies of this booklet below:

The following activities are perfect for Bike to School Week and are free to schools all year round...

Big Street Survey:
An exciting curriculum resource, enabling pupils to investigate the area around their school and create a manifesto on how to make their streets safer and greener. 

Sustrans' Big Shift:
A brand new, online challenge to motivate the school community to travel more actively. It uses individual targets, based on how pupils currently travel to school.
