Started Monday 9th June 2014
Encourages children to travel to school on their bikes over a 5 day week this June. Did you know that as little as 15 minutes of activity a day can cut in half a child’s risk of becoming obese?
There are lots of benefits to be gained by cycling to school – But before you start there are some important hints and tips to consider. Firstly, ensure that your bike is in good working order, check the tyres, lights etc. before you embark on a week of cycling to school. It’s also important to plan your route – so that you know exactly where you are going – this way you can familiarise yourself with road junctions and other things that you need to be aware of along the way. And always make sure that someone knows the route you will be taking.
As for the teachers? Well you’re just as much expected to be cycling to school too! So what are you waiting for go and get ready for Bike to School Week?
