Around 90% of children in the UK don’t get enough exercise, with the average teen clocking up a worrying five hours of screen time a day.
This lack of activity is affecting their ability to focus at school and putting them at serious risk of poor health as they grow up.
You can help fund vital cycling skills sessions.
Sustrans schools officers give children access to the skills, equipment and training they need to ride a bike. Plus, they support families to travel to school actively, starting a healthy habit in so many lives.
By donating you could help to provide more of our in-school training sessions, along with the essential equipment needed, to help teach children to ride a bike safely – starting a life-long, life-changing cycle of good.
“I get my energy up when I go on my bike, so when I get to school I’m a bit more ready for anything that’s going to happen, but when I go in the car, it’s just not as exciting. You come in and you feel a bit drowsy. You get into lessons and you’re still half asleep.” - Rowan.
Here’s how your support could make a difference:
Your support could help to start the cycle for many more children across the UK, giving them the skills, equipment and confidence to cycle safely.
