At your school!

Pump up your tyres, it's National Ride2School Day on March on Friday, 23 March 2018

An initiative of the Bicycle Network in Victoria, National Ride to School Day is a great opportunity to run some fun Your Move activities like an Obstacle Course, Dress up your bike competition or some bike education. 

National Ride2School Day is the flagship event for the Ride2School program and Bicycle Network. With more than 2,000 schools and 350,000 students taking part each year, it's a day for celebration. National Ride2School Day is the perfect opportunity for every school community to think twice about grabbing the car keys and embracing a healthier start to the day by riding and walking to school.

Register for Ride2School Day on the Bike Network website by following the prompts. By registering you will receive updates, ideas, support and free stuff (including posters) to help make your National Ride2School Day a day to remember!

Check out our guide for running an event at your school, such as the obstacle course activity. Other fun options could include

  • A Healthy breakfast
  • Bike dress-up competition
  • Slow Bike Race
  • Bonus faction points for those who cycle, scoot, skate or walk on event day

Don't forget to add your event as an activity you're planning on your school's Your Move "Activities" page:

  • Write a story about it
  • Then tick it off the activity as "Completed"
  • To receive extra redeemable points for your school.

Remember... National Ride2School Day is not just for one day, it can be done every day.
