Cycle Friendly Secondary School

Cycle Friendly Secondary School supports more pupils to enjoy the benefits of cycling and ride their bikes more often.

Cycling to school brings so many positive benefits: keeping young people fit and healthy, reduces stress ahead of exams, improves productivity and supports good mental wellbeing. The Cycle Friendly Secondary Schools programme provides a development fund and an award scheme to support schools to make it easier for their students to cycle.

The Cycle Friendly Secondary School Award

Our nationally recognised Cycle Friendly Secondary School Award rewards the parents, teachers and volunteers around Scotland committed to increasing cycling in schools. Schools are supported through each step of the process towards becoming Cycle Friendly, from the initial registration to assessment. 

The award is aimed at encouraging and supporting schools across Scotland to take a leading role in ensuring that any pupil, anywhere can enjoy the benefits of cycling. Cycling Scotland encourages schools who are developing local cycling opportunities to engage with the award as a support tool and to gain recognition for their achievements.
