The Big Walk and Wheel
About this activity
Suitable for primary and secondary school pupils. Supports the PE National Curriculum.
Since Sustrans Big Pedal started in 2011 it has grown to be much more than a cycling competition.
Sustrans Big Pedal is back but it's got a new name. Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel is the UK’s largest inter-school walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling challenge. It aims to inspire hundreds of thousands of pupils to get active on the school run. This year's challenge will take place from 21 March to 1 April 2022.
During the two-week challenge schools compete to record the greatest number of pupils walking, using a wheelchair, scooting and cycling to school, whilst learning about the benefits of active travel along the way.
The theme for 2022 will be 'Amazing Journeys' which is aimed to encourage pupils to see their local area from a new perspective whilst learning about the benefits of active travel.
The interactive school resources are designed to be fun and flexible. Ensuring that as many pupils, staff, parents and carers as possible can take part.
And active journeys taken from home or physical activity completed at home can be counted as one journey in the challenge for pupils learning remotely.
