Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel is the new name for Sustrans Big Pedal.
The event has a new name but it still has the same aim. We want to encourage more families to travel to school actively, to help create healthier and happier communities.
Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel will run for 10 days from 21 March to 1 April 2022 (with daily prizes), and is open to all primary and secondary schools in the UK, including SEN/ASN/ALN schools. This event inspires pupils to be amazing and take active journeys to school.
We want all children to join in the fun and to understand the health and wellbeing benefits of active travel. We recognise it may be harder for some children to take part. Take a look at our list of ways to take part and download our inclusivity guides (the Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel Inclusivity Guide and the Cycling and Scooting Inclusivity Guide).
On each day of the challenge, schools compete to see who can get the highest percentage of their pupils walking, using a wheelchair, scooting or cycling to school. Your school’s best five days will determine your final position, but you can log journeys on all ten days if you wish.
How many active journeys will your pupils make? Free school resources include daily classroom activities, top tips, leader boards and a school account on the Big Walk and Wheel website!
A really good opportunity to get on your bike!
