Bike It – A Sustrans’ school cycling project
Sustrans is a UK charity aimed at encouraging people to travel in ways that will benefit their health and the environment.
At Stepney Greencoat, we have a small number of children who regularly ride their bikes into school. We want to increase these numbers and are working in partnership with James Scott, our Bike It Officer, to promote the benefits of cycling as part of healthy living.
We have 6 Bike It Marshals, selected from Years 5 and 6. They help to choose and promote the cycling events and activities.
So far, we have had a fabulous response with our first few events, which have included: ‘Dr Bike It Maintenance Day’, ‘Light Up Your Bike’ and a workshop for parents.
Our Summer programme has a wonderful range of activities for pupils and adults.
The Bike It team hopes that you will enjoy them.
