‘ForwardMotion’ 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.
Bikeability (incorporating elements of Bike It)
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.
Schools are able to tackle many travel related issues such as safety, congestion, parking, carbon footprint and meeting Healthy Schools objectives. Our travel planners can help by working with schools to initially identify the issues then set achievable targets in an action plan.
