nSchools in Wokingham Borough are encouraging children, teachers and parents to jump on their bikes and scooters for The Big Pedal 2017 - a national challenge to get more young people cycling and scooting to school, backed by two times Olympic gold medallist cyclist Joanna Rowsell Shand.
The Big Pedal 2017, which runs from Monday (20 March) to Friday 31 March, will see participants across the UK leave their cars at home and get on their bikes and scooters for their journeys to and from school.
Powered by national walking and cycling charity Sustrans and funded by the Bicycle Association on behalf of the cycle industry through its Bike Hub scheme, The Big Pedal is the UK’s largest competition of its kind.
During the 10 days participating primary and secondary schools will compete with one another to make the most journeys by bike or scooter.
This year’s theme is ‘Around the world in 10 days’, with pupils tracking their progress on a map of the world, learning about the countries and cities they pass through on their way.
