Sponsored by UK cycling charity Sustrans, the Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooter-based challenge that aims to inspire and empower kids, teachers and parents to get on two wheels in order to make the daily trek to school. The Big Pedal runs for ten school days each year, and there are prizes galore in store for those who take part.
Every day, schools can battle it out to see who can get as many kids teachers and grown-ups cycling or scooting to school. In the end, the best five days of all schools are totalled up to give a final position. You might win a whole host of micro-scooters, or even a visit from the Extreme Mountain Bike Show – the largest mountain bike and trials demonstration show in the UK! Not bad for getting on a bike to go to school really, is it?
