It is important for all children to have the opportunity to cycle or scoot to school. Cycling and scooting are fun, healthy ways to get from home to school and back again.
There are wider benefits for the community as well, such as reduced congestion around the school gate.
The Travelwise programme can help your school create opportunities to allow kids to cycle and scoot safely:
- Plan a wheels day at your school.
- Sign up for walking or wheeling on weekdays
- Request a Bike Safe training session at your school.
Bike Safe - cycle safety programme
Children should know how to ride their bike or scooter safely and be confident in traffic before attempting to ride to school, with or without parents/caregivers. Our specialist Bike Safe instructor can visit your school and take your students through training to help keep them safe on their wheels.
