The 27th of September marks the beginning of Bike to School week. This is a fantastic initiative that has been organised to help introduce children to the vast benefits that cycling can bring. Not only to themselves in the form of exercise and health but also the benefits that it has in relation to the environment and helping to be sustainable.
Children will have short presentations added to their curriculum as part of Bike to School week; this will help to explain the importance of cycling and also provide key information on understanding their bike and making sure it is safe to ride before setting off for school.
The importance of living a lifestyle that is healthy as well as sustainable is becoming ever more prominent; and schemes like the Bike to School Week are hugely important for starting kids off on the right track to achieving this.
This is the perfect opportunity to encourage your children to cycle to school!
