Millions of children in this country want to cycle to school. Nationally, only 2% do. A 2008 Sustrans study showed that the local Kesgrave High School as a UK leader with over 60% of children cycling to school. So why are other local schools not following Kesgrave’s example?
The 2010 Cycle Ipswich Member Survey highlighted safe routes to schools, cycle education and tackling childhood obesity as areas of major campaign interest for our group.
Our guest speaker will be Rowan Wilson who is Sustrans Bike It Supervisor for East of England. Bike IT is the Sustrans campaign which aims to get more children cycling to school.
The meeting will be held on Friday 30th July, from 7.00 pm until 9 pm. The venue is the Friends Meeting House, 39 Fonnereau Road, Ipswich, IP1 3JH. Cycle parking is available!
