PUPILS at 11 Ash­ford Schools are set to em­bark on a vir­tual bike race around the world.

Over the next month, 700 pupils will be given the chance to fol­low in the foot­steps of the cycling ad­ven­turer Alas­tair Humphreys who spent four years cycling 46,000 miles around the world.

They will be racing against 140 other schools from across Eng­land to see who can be first to com­plete the chal­lenge, or­gan­ised by the sus­tain­able trans­port char­ity Sus­trans.

The race aims to get pupils, par­ents and teach­ers cycling. Each time a pupil, par­ent or teacher cy­cles to school, miles will be added to their school’s jour­ney around the world.

The schools tak­ing part are Beaver Green Com­mu­nity; John Wes­ley; Kingsnorth; The North; St Mary’s; Willes­bor­ough Ju­nior; Phoenix Com­mu­nity; St Si­mon; Ten­ter­den Ju­nior; The Tow­ers and Nor­ton Knatch­bull.
