Bike To School Week

This week, 5-9th May, is Bike To School Week. Monday being a Bank Holiday, it's a short week, but hopefully children can take advantage and create their own critical mass cycling to school. Apparently less than 2% of the 8.3 million kids actually cycle to school although over 30% would like to.

See the Bike for All web page Cycling to School for information, links and answers to common questions about the issues relating to cycling to school. Also, check out the Sustran's Bike It website. Bike It is a project aiming to improve the number of children cycling to school through the encouragement of local cycling officers. Encourage your school to get involved and begin to change the school run where you live.
