With more than 2,000 schools and 350,000 students taking part each year, National Ride2School Day is the perfect opportunity for every school community to leave their cars at home and embrace a healthier start to the day by riding and walking to school. It's also a great day for kids to learn and practice bike riding skills in a safe and fun way.

The Bike Network have some excellent resources available for download, including a poster and tally chart for a hands up survey, along with an infographic with great information to get your class talking about active travel.
