The Big Pedal: It’s off!05/03/2012 Cycling to School
The Big Pedal will see more than 1 million journeys being logged.
Pupils, teachers and parents cycle or scoot to school to complete each of the 15 Big Pedal stages, which is a bit like the daily stages of cycling’s big annual event, the Tour de France.
The more people that cycle or scoot to school, the faster the school completes each stage.
The eventual Big Pedal winner is the school that completes the whole race in the quickest overall time.
