2015 return for school cycling and scooting competition

Date Posted: 04/12/2014

The Big Pedal competition is set to return next year.

Running from 2nd to 20th March, the event is open to Primary and Secondary schools and challenges them to compete against one another to make the most journeys to school by bike and scooter over 15 days.

The competition is run by charity Sustrans and funded by the Bicycle Association on behalf of the cycle industry through its Bike Hub scheme.

Last year over 1,500 schools signed up to take part and pupils, teachers, parents, and siblings made over a million journeys (1,142,374) to school on their bikes and scooters over the ten days.

By signing up to The Big Pedal schools will receive a wall-chart to record their progress, whilst a range of resources designed to support schools are available in the teachers section of the Sustrans website.

Winning schools will receive prizes including bike and scooter stunt shows and equipment.

Registration for The Big Pedal 2015 is now open.
