The Big Pedal 2016

Monday 18th April sees the start of The Big Pedal.  It runs from Monday 18th April to Friday 29th April.  This is the largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils to choose two wheels for their journey to school.  We will be competing against thousands of other schools right across the UK.  Can we come out as the top cycling school in Comber?  


Anyone from P4-7 can take part.  Please return the reply slip on the note received in school to Mr Pinkerton if you want to take part at any time.


Important Information

  • Your child must have a bike or scooter that is in full working order.

  • Your child MUST wear a helmet when cycling- No helmet=no cycling.

  • All bikes and scooters MUST be locked up in the bike shed or bike pods.

  • The school can take no responsibility for any lost or damaged bikes.
