Some of you may be taking part in Bike to School Week this week and if you're not, there's still time. And even if your kids are not cyclists (or not quite ready yet) there's still the option to walk or scoot; whichever takes your fancy and is least stressful for the accompanying adult!
If you're looking for helpful guidance and tips, look no further than the Sustrans website. Not only is there a free guide for families with advice on safely walking, cycling or scooting to school, but there's also a photo competition where you can win a kid's bike. If your children do stand still long enough to get a decent-ish snap, please share them with us and we'll feature them on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
If your children enjoy writing, there's another competition being run by Bikeability. It's based on creating a story and there's a fantastic bike up for grabs.
If you and your children are planning to travel to school, the park, nursery, college, evening clubs or trips at the weekend, make sure you're all equipped with high viz clothing and accessories. We have high viz reflective sashes in kids' sizes, as well as waterproof high viz reflective helmet covers.There's a good selection of vibrant colours to choose from, keeping even the most discerning child happy.
