Bike It Crews

A small group of responsible, cycle-mad pupils from mixed higher years, or a few members of the school council or Eco group can take on this role.

Bike It Crews encourage peer-to-peer engagement. It's a fun and engaging way to spread important messages and build skills for life.

 

They are responsible for promoting walking, cycling or scooting to school, a massive help to school champions and could:


        Assist or lead road safety assemblies
        Conduct bike/scooter counts or other travel surveys
        Give talks on their passion for cycling, scooting or walking
        Run competitions like Prize Bag

        Help plan future events

 

Weekly or fortnightly bike & scooter counts 
We can use this data to:

          take yearly averages
          track % of bike and scoot rack capacity used
          compare months/seasons
          measure the success of an event or competition
 

 

Ask your school champion to help set up a Bike It data account that will send the counts straight to us:
