More and more Welsh school children get on their bikes

Sustran, the organisation that campaigns for safer public transport as well as pedestrian and cycling routes, has announced that the 42 schools in Wales that joined the Cymru’s Bike It Programme has seen a rise in the number of pupils who turn up for school on their bikes.
The initiative, that has been supported by the Welsh Government, has seen 27 per cent of pupils arrive by bike at least once a week, which is a rise of 9 per cent since September.
Sustran has been working with school staff, pupils and parents in order to encourage cycling through a number of different activities such as cycle skills, bike maintenance, route planning as well as installing bike racks for safe and secure parking.
The rise in numbers of children cycling to school is encouraging and will go a long way to discourage obesity and raise good health.
