Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel

Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel is the UK’s largest inter-school walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling challenge. It inspires pupils to make active journeys to school to improve air quality in their neighbourhood. And this year, we're celebrating 15 years of the Big Walk and Wheel.

Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel encourages pupils to go to school by walking, wheeling, scooting or cycling.

This year's challenge takes place from 11-22 March 2024.

Why take part

Travelling actively and sustainably has never been so important, it helps pupils arrive to school alert and ready to start the day and helps create a nicer environment around the school.

We have designed our interactive school resources to be fun, flexible, and informative on how small changes can make a big difference.

Free resources available include:

  • Curriculum linked lesson plans
  • Top tips
  • School assembly presentation.
