Haddenham Cycle Training, in association with the Community Junior School, is encouraging school children to cycle to school as part of a cycling 'snake' on the first three Mondays of this month: i.e., on the 2nd, 9th and 16th March.
'The Big Pedal' is designed to encourage children to enjoy the pleasures of cycling and scooting, gain some valuable, health-giving exercise and reduce the number of potential school runs in Mum or Dad's Taxi! Every day for the next 3 weeks Mrs Matthews, one of the school governors and co-ordinator of this travel plan initiative, will be keeping records of who cycles and scoots to school as part of the national Big Pedal scheme.
Fiona Quinn, on behalf of Haddenham Cycle Training, said: "Everyone recognises the need to reduce our reliance on motorised transport, especially for short journeys in the village, and we're keen to support the use of bicycles as a means of travelling to school.
"The Big Pedal snakes will be very well supervised, to ensure that local youngsters stay safe on the road, and we hope they will pick up a little traffic awareness en route to school."
To re-inforce the Big Pedal's message, Haddenham Cycle Training is running a Bikeability Level 2 course after school with HCJS pupils today and for the following three Mondays.
If you'd like to know more about this initiative or sign up for next week's snake, speak to Sam at the junior school reception, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
