Big Pedal 2020 is cancelled

It is with regret that we have decided to cancel Big Pedal 2020 in light of the Covid-19 outbreak.

We want to make sure everyone is kept safe. And we want to minimise the risk of spreading Coronavirus wherever possible.

With the recent announcement that schools across the UK are closing and after monitoring government and NHS guidance daily, we have cancelled this year’s challenge.

A huge thank you to all schools, teachers, parents, sponsors and partners, and our Big Pedal ambassador Dame Sarah Storey, for their understanding and support during these challenging times.

Keep an eye out here on the Sustrans website for future events and challenges you can take part in.

And for families, we have lots of tips and information here on our website to keep you all busy. Why not sign-up to our family newsletter for interesting ways to entertain the kids?

Visit the Big Pedal website for all the latest information and updates about the challenge.
