Cy­cle ini­tia­tive is wheely great idea

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

YOUNG­STERS got on their bikes to take part in a school’s first ever Cy­cle to School Week.

Boys at Thorpe House School in Ger­rards Cross were chal­lenged to cy­cle to school ev­ery day in­stead of com­ing by car. The event was held to help ease con­ges­tion at school drop off and pick up times, and also to en­cour­age ex­er­cise early in the morn­ings, which has been proved to help learn­ing.

The ini­tia­tive was or­gan­ised by teacher Ian Plun­kett who said: “We are re­ally proud of those boys who have braved the frost and freez­ing tem­per­a­tures to do their bit for the en­vi­ron­ment.”
