Why walk, bike, or scoot to school?

Research shows walking and biking to school improves physical fitness and helps develop confidence, independence, decision making and risk assessment skills, improve communication with parents and build a stronger sense of community.

Try walking or wheeling for ONE day!

We understand active travel can be a challenge for many families. The distance to school, time pressures of work and after-school activities along with concerns about road and personal safety impact on the decision to allow walking and biking to school.

 

Movin'March provides a great opportunity to overcome these barriers and give walking or wheeling a go – even if it’s just for one day to see for yourself how rewarding it can be for your family.
