Big Walk and Wheel

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 - 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 school days from 21 March to 1 April 2022.


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).

How it works

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.
A school’s best five days will determine their final position and schools at the top of their leaderboards will receive an exclusive Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel certificate.

The journeys will be logged by each teacher - with classes within St Bernard's competing against each other.



All schools will be entered into daily prize draws for rewards if over 15% of your school takes part on each day of the challenge. Prizes up for grabs include accessories and equipment to help your school travel actively.
