Cycle to School Week

Organised by the Bikeability Trust and supported by Sustrans, Cycle to School Week is a week-long event where families are encouraged to try cycling and scooting to school.

It’s a great way to celebrate the huge benefits an active school run brings including the positive impact it has on children’s health and wellbeing, on local air quality, and on carbon emissions.

Cycle to School Week is taking place from 25 to 29 September 2023.
