Sustrans is the UK’s leading sustainable transport charity. Their vision is a world in which people choose to travel in ways that benefit their health and the environment. Every day working on practical, innovative ways of dealing with the transport challenges that affect us all. Their Bike It scheme is currently operating a HUGE drive in schools to generate enthusiasm about cycling and subsequently leading to a dramatic increase in the number of children who cycle to school; it has already QUADRUPLED the amount of biycles in the newly installed bike racks beginning to make regular appearences in schools across the country!
You can see why we were so excited about ‘joining in the movement’ by putting on a school disco yesterday for one of the targeted schools; in preparation for this gig we went to town on some kiddie bikes, adapting them to make them suitable + efficient on the rollers. Splendidly, their new forms ran like a dream + played host to many rosy cheeked little ones beaming at the opportunity to power some music for their fellow school buddies (who were, by the way, shaking some seriously impressive dancefloor steps for primary school children!)
