Like2Bike

Focus of work

Like2Bike supports children to cycle. They run Whole School Cycling (WSC) for Years 3 to 6 in four schools in Hackney, London. WSC happens at least one day a week, every week of the academic year, and includes extensive cycle training, racing, after-school club, bike loans, bike fixing and – coming soon – bike buses, which will support and encourage children’s cycling to and from school.

Impact

The Like2Bike Bus aims to:

  • get children cycling consistently, increasing their independence
  • give disadvantaged children an opportunity to cycle, increasing their life skills
  • enhance children’s physical and mental health, improving their ability to concentrate in class
  • achieve a modal shift from motor traffic to active travel
  • help create safer roads around the participating schools (and to and from the schools)
  • improve air quality.
