Surfaces for Safe Cycling Using Resin Alternatives
Bike to school week 2019 is a week long event held from Monday 23rd to Friday 27th September designed to showcase the benefits of cycling to school. NatraTex supports bike to school week by installing durable, coloured cycle lanes.
What are the benefits of cycle lanes and alternative cycle routes?
Bike to School Week highlights how riding a bicycle has a positive effect on ourselves and our environment. Children can learn about checking their cycle to make sure it is safe to use before setting off on their journey. They can let their imaginations run wild and get creative with designs to customise and “Bling their Bike”. Understanding how getting outside and riding is good for our physical and mental health, from increased heart rates to improving our concentration and mood. They get to discuss what generates carbon dioxide and other air pollutants and how it affects our climate and the air we breathe. Many aspects of the National Curriculum are covered through cycle based learning.
According to Sustrans, the cycling charity, through their safe cycling initiatives, dedicated routes and the Bikeability programme, 5.2 million school run trips by car have been removed from the road and 786 million walking and cycling trips were made on the National Cycle Network.
