Our new project for the coming year is BIKE IT, working in partnership with Sustrans. The project supports and develops our drive to promote healthy lifestyles by encouraging as many children as possible to choose bikes, scooters or even skateboards as their chosen mode of transport to and from school. There are currently 45 BIKE IT schools in Doncaster and we look forward to increasing that statistic.
We will hold a variety of events and activities to try and encourage children to start using ‘active travel’.
Our School Champion for BIKE IT is Mr Tuhey who is now recruiting for Barnburgh Primary’s BIKE IT CREW.
BIKE IT Breakfast and Bike Health Check.
On Tuesday 10th October we saw a record number of children (and parents) arriving to school on their bikes, scooters or skateboards. It was wonderful to see families joining in with the event; some of whom set off from their homes as early as 7:30 in the morning! There was breakfast on offer for all participants, served by Mr Tuhey, followed by a free health check for all bikes, carried out by Tom Collister.
Thank you to everyone who supported this event.
