It’s time to ditch the car and get moving!
Join our Active Travel Challenge and walk, ride, scoot or skate to school or work this spring!
We’ve teamed up with partners to encourage more walking and cycling, to help improve health and wellbeing in Lincolnshire. This challenge isn’t about the fastest times, or the longest distances -we’re asking if you can swap those short car journeys for a walk or ride instead.
Children are leading the way and across Lincolnshire, they are desperate to switch journeys from vehicles to active travel so why not download the challenge sheet and have a go?
To take part simply download a challenge sheet, and fill it out on your computer or print it off. As well as recording your active travel, you can also make a note of other ways you’ve been active throughout the week in the ‘Active Achievements’ section.
Share your active journeys!
We’d love to see how you’re travelling actively. Share an image of your active travel log sheet and an image of you on your active journey on social media using the hashtag #Letsmovelincolnshire. If you do, you might be one of the lucky people to receive a prize!
(If you’re under eighteen make sure you get your parent or guardian to do this for you).
Why take part?
- Cycling, walking or scooting to school is a great way for children to get some of their recommended daily 60 minutes of activity in. Active travel is also an easy way to achieve the recommended amounts of physical activity for adults!
- You’ll be doing your bit to reduce pollution and congestion around the school gates, and in your local area.
- Children who use active travel to get to school will be more alert and ready to learn than those who travel to school by car!
