Save the date for 2020
The Big Pedal will take place Wednesday 22 April - Tuesday 5 May 2020.
How it works
The challenge runs for two weeks and is open to individual classes as well as whole schools. On each day of the challenge, schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling, walking or scooting to school.
A school’s best five days will determine their final position, but they can log journeys on all ten days if they wish.
There are daily prizes up for grabs, including equipment and accessories to help schools travel actively. Free school resources are available to make the challenges a success.
