About this activity

Suitable for all schools and nurseries.

We know that your schools and nurseries are creative places and your pupils, staff and communities are bursting with ideas of how to get young London moving!

This is your chance to share your school’s own original cycling activity, different to anything else already listed on the STARS site.

Did you organise a velodrome-themed cycling party to celebrate the Olympics? Could you plan a sponsored cycle challenge to raise money for extra bike sheds?
