CYCLE TO SCHOOL WEEK IS COMING

Pre Launch day: To promote the Sustrans Cycle to School Week this year, we are having a special event to launch the initiative and act as a ‘call to action’!
Leigh Timmis: Guinness World Record Holder – visit to school Friday 17thSeptember.

On the 26th of September 2018, Leigh cycled into the record books, becoming the fastest person to cycle across Europe in a time of 16 days 10 hours and 45 minutes. Cycling 14 hours per day, from the west coast of Portugal to the edge of Siberia, he broke the previous world record by an astonishing eight days and seven hours.
Leigh will be providing a presentation for Key Stage 2 children on motivation, overcoming barriers and recognising that challenges are steps to future success.
Leigh will also be joining us during the Cycle to School Week (27th September to 1stOctober) to hand out awards and certificates (linked to those cycling to school and a whole school challenge – watch this space!).
Stunt cycling display! Danny Butler.
Also on that day, the children will be given the opportunity to watch a ‘Stunt/Trail’ riding display by Danny Butler!
This will be an awe-inspiring display of what a committed and discipline human can do with a bicycle, the power of determination and some guts!
Coming soon: Bike sat in the shed unused?
