The ‘Ideas in Motion’ and Cycle Southend deliver a range of integrated services aimed at encouraging and empowering the whole school community to travel better in Southend. This includes travelling healthily, cheaply and easily. Our main activities directly engage pupils and school staff.
The team have been delivering Bikeability in Southend schools since 2008. They are able to deliver intensive courses on consecutive days as a whole class activity. Members of staff are encouraged to join in with their class and receive a certificate and badge upon qualification. The team are sometimes able to provide loan bikes and helmets ensuring that the activity is all inclusive. The team are delighted to be able to offer some of the key elements of Bike It.
