What's the challenge?
Stay active with Sustrans is a weekly challenge to help you all keep busy during the lockdown.
Submit your photos or videos based on the week's theme or challenge. And you could be in with a chance of winning a brand new bike or scooter.
This is your time to shine. Get creative, be active at home, and use your phone or camera to document these fun moments.
Who can take part?
If you're a family living in London, this challenge is for you.
How does it work?
We'll also announce the challenge in the box at the top of this page.
You have seven days to get creative and show what you've been doing for the week's challenge in your video or photo.
The more creative, the better. We're looking for the best fun and inventive ways you've stayed active during the lockdown.
And each week we'll share tips on how to stand out.
Photos should ideally be in landscape or square format, but this is not an essential criterion for entry.
The competition is rolling week by week, and we'll announce the end date as soon as we can.
You'll find a full list of terms and conditions at the bottom of this page.
I'm in. How do I submit my family's photo or video?
Upload your photos and videos on Twitter, tag @sustransLondon and use #SustransActiveLondon.
And if you prefer Facebook, just tag @sustrans and use #SustransActiveLondon.
You can also submit your entries via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entrants must have the consent of a parent or guardian over the age of 18 to enter. Entries must be uploaded by a representative adult over the age of 18.

How will I find out if I've won?
If you're one of our lucky winners, you'll be contacted directly via the platform you uploaded your entry to.
This is a weekly challenge so there'll be plenty of chances to take part and win a new bike or scooter.
Update on prizes
Due to the rising demand for bikes and scooters during the coronavirus lockdown, most bike shops are currently sold out of bikes.
This means there will be a delay in you receiving your prize. As soon as more bikes are in stock, we will be able to send your prize.
Since the recent government restrictions, many of us are spending more time at home so staying physically and mentally active is more important than ever.
At Sustrans, we have been busy adapting and sharing activities and resources with schools to keep families active.
We look forward to seeing how you are being creative and staying active with Sustrans.
