Celebrate on the final day you take part in Sustrans Big Pedal
Wear non-uniform, raise money and include everyone
Active journeys- that’s cycling, walking, wheeling and scooting-are amazing. They are good for the environment and good for your health. We think that deserves celebrating.
We want to celebrate how amazing your pupils have been- taking part in Sustrans Big Pedal and learning about the benefits of active travel.
Amazing Me Day is a great way to involve all pupils in Sustrans Big Pedal. We suggest you hold it on the last day of your school’s Big Pedal challenge. If you can’t take part on this day, you can choose another day during the challenge.
It is also the perfect day to make sure all your journeys are logged to the Big Pedal website and your school’s entry to the re-naming competition has been selected.
You can also use the day to fundraising for Sustrans, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Over the years, thousands of children across the UK have dressed up during the Big Pedal. Everyone has a great time and at the same time raise funds for Sustrans.
How it works
1. Tell parents
2. Encourage the kids to wear something of their choice
- Encourage everyone at your school to wear non-uniform for the day.
- We want them to wear something of their own choice that they feel comfortable in.
- It could be wearing their favourite pair of leggings or a pair of comfy jeans. One of their favourite colours or something that reminds them of their favourite sports team.
- They are amazing and anything they choose goes.
3. Additional activities
Log your journeys
Log your journeys to the Big Pedal website to find out your final score.
Announce your school’s winners
If you are running any competitions within your school (e.g. best individual effort, top class result) this is a good opportunity to announce winners.
New name selection
If you are taking part in the Sustrans Big Pedal re-naming competition you may also wish to announce which name has been selected to be your school’s entry into the UK-wide competition.
4. Fundraise for Sustrans
Ask all pupils who dress up to give £1. Collect and donate the money to Sustrans (details on how to donate below) or use towards the school’s active journey projects.
