Find out how you can get involved and what the benefits of cycling can be in both the long and short term.
Organised by Sustrans and supported by Bikeability Trust, National Bike to School Week aims to get parents and kids back into cycling.
They support schools with resources that students can get involved with that includes:
Cycling to school can play a role in improving your child’s performance in class. The morningexercise can boost children’s energy levels and lower lethargy throughout the school day -getting them to participate in class more!
Not only is biking to school good for exercise it’s also good for helping the planet. Traffic around schools can be a problem. Encouraging more children and parents to cycle together to school reduces congestion directly around the school. Getting on the bike to school can also reduce carbon emissions - less traffic will help the environment!
Looking further ahead, this can also be a great way to get your children involved in a fun hobby that can continue to keep them active and healthy.
If you need some financial support to get involved in National Bike to School Week one of our loans could help you afford new bikes and safety equipment. Equally, if you want to upgrade your bikes and gear and treat your family this Christmas, a Leeds Credit Union loancould again help make these purchases easier.
We hope you enjoy this week and continue biking/cycling in the future - be sure to tag Leeds Credit Union with any pictures or videos from the week!
