Parents and Carers

Getting Started – Parents Information

Recently, it’s been fantastic to see an increase in the number of families taking up walking, cycling and scooting. But we know that changing the way we travel can raise a lot of questions. We have created some videos and resources to help parents and carers. Sustrans also has some great advice on Walking, cycling and wheeling during Covid-19 in Scotland.

There is general advice for parents further down the page.

 

 

 

 

Encourage your children

I Bike schools deliver indoor and outdoor walking, cycling and scooting activities which help increase children’s skills and confidence. Activities are designed to teach children about the importance of being active and will boost their enthusiasm for travelling actively.

There are a few things you can do if you and your child are keen to become more active:

Cycling or Scooting

Start cycling or scooting with kids. Exploring together is a great way to build confidence

Can you ride, scoot or walk the route to school so they get to know it?

If you would like to get involved – you can help at an I Bike session or become a regular volunteer. Get in touch with your school or contact IBike@sustrans.org.uk
