Monday Activity – Street Awareness Competition
Age Group: Primary
With our new found love for cycling and walking during the past few months, we are asking people to look at their local streets from a cyclists point of view. Similar to the ‘walkability audits’ that Green-Schools students complete as part of their Travel flag, we want you to cycle on your local road, your route to school or wherever you have been enjoying recently and complete the activity sheet below.
The more we are aware of the hazards and infrastructure, or lack of, that surround us, the more we can make informed choices for improved future developments. Do complete the activity sheet form and mail it back to the address given to be in with a chance to win cycling prizes! Happy cycling!
