Bikeability: Cycle to School Week

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

Cycle to School Week takes place from October 3 to 7 with a number of options for how pupils and their families can take part.

Organised by the Bikeability Trust, in partnership with Sustrans, participants can choose between pledging to swap one car journey for cycling, cycle to school every day, cycle with their family, or discover somewhere new on a cycle ride.

For schools, there are presentations, activities, and lesson plans to use to continue the conversation around active travel beyond Cycle to School Week.

On average, according to Cycling UK, just 2.2% of children cycle to school compared to 35.4% who are driven to school. And yet the average journey to school is just 2.4 miles.
