Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel is the new name for Sustrans Big Pedal.

The event has a new name but it still has the same aim. We want to encourage more families to travel to school actively, to help create healthier and happier communities.

Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel will run for 10 days from 21 March to 1 April 2022 and is open to all primary and secondary schools in the UK, including SEN schools.

Join in between 21 March and 1 April to be in with a chance of winning fabulous prizes every day.

On each day of the challenge schools compete to see who can record the greatest number of pupils walking, using a wheelchair, scooting or cycling to school.

We want all children to join in the fun and to understand the health and wellbeing benefits of active travel. We recognise it may be harder for some children to take part. Take a look at our list of ways to take part and download our inclusivity guides (the Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel Inclusivity Guide and the Cycling and Scooting Inclusivity Guide).

What is Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel?

Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel inspires pupils to be amazing and take active journeys to school.

On each day of the challenge, schools compete to see who can get the highest percentage of their pupils walking, using a wheelchair, scooting or cycling to school. Your school’s best five days will determine your final position, but you can log journeys on all ten days if you wish.

How many active journeys will your pupils make?

School Resources

Free daily resources will encourage pupils to see their local area from a new perspective, learn about the benefits of getting to school actively and discover amazing journeys to school from around the world.

These free resources include:

  • daily classroom activities
  • a school account on the Big Walk and Wheel website
  • top tips
  • leader boards.

Daily prize draws

Schools will be entered into a daily prize draw for rewards including equipment and accessories if over 15% of your pupils walk, use a wheelchair, scoot or cycle on that day of the challenge.
