The Big Pedal

The Big PedalThe Big Pedal

The Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scootering challenge. It inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school.

How it works

On each day of the Big Pedal challenge, schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling or scootering to school. Schools log their journeys on the Big Pedal website and are given a daily score to help mark their progress.

Healthy travel habits

During the Big Pedal 2016 schools recorded over 1 million journeys by bike and scooter in just two weeks. Well done to everyone who took part.

How to take part

In 2017 The Big Pedal will run for two weeks: 20 March to 31 March. Big Pedal is free and registration is quick and easy.

For schools unable to take part in the two-week 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.
