Established in 2008, Hands Up Scotland is the largest national dataset to look at mode of travel to school across Scotland. The project is funded by Transport Scotland and is a joint survey between Sustrans and Scottish local authorities.
Sustrans has secured funding to deliver cycle parking and infrastructure projects in and around schools across Scotland, with the aim of encouraging and enabling more pupils to travel actively to school.
Sustrans’ I Bike project works with schools in Scotland delivering practical solutions to two specific issues associated with cycling to school: The drop in cycling levels when children move from primary to secondary school and the gender gap that sees girls cycling far less than boys of the school journey.
Bike to School Week is our annual celebration of active travel to school. Bike to School Week can be run at any time of the year. You can get involved with fun class activities on each day, all designed to support curriculum outcomes and take your pupils on a journey exploring the benefits of travelling by foot, bike or scooter.
