Asking parents, children and schools to saddle up
Schools across Staff-ordshire have been invited to saddle up for the 2019 Bike to School week.
The campaign, which runs from 23rd to 27th September, is being supported by Staffordshire County Council’s school travel team, which is calling on schools, parents and children to join the celebration and cycle to school during that week.
Current figures show that only 2% of primary school children in England travel to school by cycle.
This is a stark contrast to cycling levels elsewhere such as in the Netherlands, where cycling is the main mode of transport for 49% of primary school children.
