Walking buses – we can help schools launch and promote walking buses. A walking bus is a form of student transport for schoolchildren who, led by two or more parents (‘Drivers’ lead and ‘conductors’ follow) walk to school. Like a traditional bus, walking buses have a route with designated ‘bus stops’ and ‘pick up times’ at which they pick up children. Walking buses allow groups of parents to share responsibility for getting their kids to school and they give kids plenty of exercise and help reduce CO2 emissions too!
After school cycling clubs – our support can include guided rides and cycle maintenance courses.
Dr Bike – Dr Bike is available to attend a wide range of events and offers free check-ups and repairs for bikes of students, parents and teachers.
Fun bikes – we have a range of weird, wonderful and exciting bikes for children to have a go with.
Cycling presentations – these presentations for assemblies include BMX tricks, professional racers and more to promote all kinds of cycling to young people.
Learn to Ride – these sessions are aimed at 4-8 year olds and are run by qualified Ridewise Cycle Instructors.
Family bike maintenance clubs – an opportunity for parents and kids to learn how to build and fix their own bikes together. On some of these courses attendees will build a bike from scratch and get to keep it free of charge once it’s finished building!
Family bike rides – these special events are designed for parents and kids to ride together and are led by Ridewise Cycle Instructors. These are often organised to celebrate pupils completing a Bikeability course. The rides are usually take place in local parks and free loan bikes can be provided if you’ve not got your own.
