Cycle parking installed

Cycle parking installed

About this activity

Suitable for primary and secondary schools.

Install cycle parking to encourage your pupils and colleagues to cycle to school rather than take the car. This can help reduce congestion and improve road safety and air quality around the school gates.

Speak to your borough officer for ideas on obtaining funding for cycle parking.

Please note: you can only mark this activity as complete once your cycle parking is installed.
