Bike It and cycling in schools

 

Children cycling at BikeFestTravel Shropshire wants to make it easier for children to cycle, both to school and in general.

 

We're doing this by:

  • Building more cycle routes to schools and other places you want to go to.
  • Building more places to cross the road near schools and other places you want to go to.
  • Putting in more places for you to park your bike at school. So you don't have to worry about it getting wet or stolen.
  • Teaching lots more kids to cycle, so you have better skills.
  • Running cycling events and activities at school.
  • Giving your parents lots of advice so they feel happier for you to ride your bike.

 

What would make it easier for you to cycle to school?

Bike It

Jo MorisonTravel Shropshire funds Bike It, a Sustrans project, in Shrewsbury and Oswestry.

 

There is currently one Bike It Officer, Jo Morison, covering Oswestry and Shrewsbury. Sadly the previous Shrewsbury officer, Jess Holohan, left the job in January 2015.

 

Bike It officers work with schools, mostly during school hours, to organise loads of great, fun cycling activities and events, including bike checks and skills sessions. They are available to give assemblies and talk to parents and governors about the benefits of cycling.
