The Big Pedal
About this activity
Suitable for primary and secondary school pupils. Supports the PE National Curriculum.
The Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge. Powered by Sustrans and funded by the Bike Hub, the 2021 challenge will run from 19th to 30th April 2021 and is open to individual classes as well as whole schools.
On each day of the challenge schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. A school’s best five days will determine their final position, but they can log journeys on all ten days if they wish.
For schools unable to take part in the main challenge we also have a one-day version, which can include cycling and scooting activities in the school day as well as on the journey to school.
