In September, as part of the rescheduled Bike Week, Green-Schools invited schools to take on the #BikeShedChallenge to be in with a chance to win a free bike shelter along with a cycling accessories goodie pack. Schools were asked to demonstrate their need for a bike shed upgrade by posting a photo on social media or by emailing their entry to @greenschoolsire.
We received many creative entries and learnt that while cycling to school is enjoying a great boom across Ireland currently, schools desperately need more structural improvements which facilitate and promote active travel to school. It was very hard to choose a winner…. but here are the nominees, slide to have a peak! If your school want to increase the cycling culture within the school check in with your local Travel Officer for cycling supports.
