The Big Pedal 2020

Schools are being invited to take up the Big Pedal 2020 – the UK’s largest cycling, walking and scooting competition for schools.

Organised by the walking and cycling charity Sustrans, Big Pedal 2020 will run from April 22 to May 5 when pupils will compete to make the most journeys by bike, foot or scooter.

Sustrans says that currently just two per cent of children in the UK cycle to school, with the number of children being driven on the rise.

Last year, the Big Pedal saw 3.8 million journeys made by bike, foot and scooter and more than 1,600 schools take part.

The theme of the competition for 2020 is “Travelling around the body”, with pupils tracking their progress on a wall chart, learning about the human body and how active travel benefits their health as they go.
