Dr Bike Day – 14th May 2021

Posted by on May 4, 2021 in News | No Comments

As part of our commitment to sustainability we are part of the Sustrans schools project which promotes active travel to school (walking, scooting and cycling) and aims to reduce congestion near to school.

We are holding a Cycle/Scoot to School Day on Friday 14th May. 

Students who cycle/scoot to school will have a free maintenance safety check done on their bike or scooter. Small adjustments will be made and a report made which will outline work done and any further work needed. A typical bike check involves checking/adjusting brakes, handlebars, saddle and pedals, inflating tyres, tightening nuts and bolts and oiling parts.

Scooter checks involve checking wheels, deck and fixings, making adjustments where necessary.

The school recommends the use of helmets. All bikes need to be roadworthy and have working brakes and pumped up tyres.  

These free checks are available to both staff and pupils.

To take part simply cycle or scoot to school on Friday 14th May!
