Cycle to school
There are lots of reasons to think about how children and young people travel to school. Walking and cycling are a fun and healthy option for travel to school in many cases. Walking and cycling to school can also ease congestion around the school, making it a safer environment.
Fife Council have installed new bike parking at schools across Fife, including in Kirkcaldy, to help encourage more cycling to school.
Ten schools in Kirkcaldy are taking part in the I Bike schools programme as part of Make your move Kirkcaldy this year.
I Bike is all about getting more kids cycling to school and cycling in their own time.
I Bike activities have included hands-on bike maintenance sessions with P5/6/7 pupils at all the schools, as well as playground cycle skills sessions, bike breakfasts, led rides, pump track sessions, and hi-vis and helmet days.
Fife Council and Sustrans are also working together to provide even more cycle parking for schools where more and more bikes are being brought in every day.
