The Slow Bike Race and Obstacle Course activity is designed to be fun and raise the profile of bikes in your school. The hope is to entice as many people as possible onto a bike (including non bike riders!).Tell us about how you organised your slow bike race, who got involved and show us photos of people having fun on bikes. Don't forget to award bike prizes on the day!

Running a Slow Bike Race and Obstacle Course is also a great way to reward students who walk, cycle, scoot or take the bus to school. It can be set up for regular lunchtime sessions, as part of a bigger end of term celebration or a themed event day. See bottom of page for download.
