The Big Pedal - 19th to 30th April 2021

Dear parents,


We would like to invite all our children & families to take part in the Big Pedal 2021- the UK’s largest inter-school cycling, walking, wheeling and scooting competition. The event will run from 19 to 30 April 2021.


With almost a third of children in England engaging in less than 30 minutes of daily physical activity in the 2019 – 2020 academic year, Sustrans Big Pedal challenge is an easy way for families and teaching staff to stay active whether schools are open or not.


The competition has inspired hundreds of thousands of pupils to take active journeys to school, and is fronted by Dame Sarah Storey, British Paralympian and 38-time world champion in cycling and swimming.


The Big Pedal family competition gives parents and guardians the chance to win one of these three amazing prizes for their family. All they need to do is take a photo or a short video of their child(ren) taking part in Big Pedal between 19-30 April. Post it to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, tag @Sustrans and use #BigPedalWin. Families whose children are remote learning can still take part from home. There are three amazing family prizes up for grabs thanks to Micro Scooters, Pedal Threadz and LiteLok.


If children decide to come on a bike or scooter please make sure they have a lock to secure it.


Many thanks


Mr M Murphy
