Ride2School Day How-to Guide

To make sure that your school is encouraging walking and riding, we encourage all schools to hold a Ride2School Day either once a month, or once a term.

Many schools incorporate a Ride2School Day into school sports activities, creating a whole day event for being active.

We can support you to promote a healthy active travel to school culture in your community. You can give this flyer to your principal to start the conversation about how we can support you and make walking and riding to school easy for your school to encourage.

HandsUp! is a key tool used by schools that we work with. It allows your school to track its progress with getting more students active and is a great way to measure your school's success.  

The Handsup system also provides some great feedback that you can share with your school in newsletters of at assemblies.
