Become a school cycling champion

Cycling Scotland want to know what you would do with up to £3,000 to encourage more cycling at your school. Tell us your ideas to win a place on a week-long camp to build leadership skills and become a cycle champion in your school.

Cycling Scotland invite you to apply to attend Cycling Scotland School Camps for pupils to develop as school cycle champions.  You will be supported by experts and experienced tutors to develop your ideas into an action plan that we will support you to implement in your school.

The competition is open to teams of up to 4 pupils who must be in S4 or S5 in August 2016.

10 successful teams from around Scotland will be invited to attend a week-long camp in the October school break (17th until 21st October 2016).

At a five day residential camp pupils will develop their idea and create and action plan:

  • Workshop activities to develop the funding ideas and create an action plan
  • Preparing and delivering a group presentation
  • Cycle maintenance, First Aid and Cycle Training Assistant qualification
  • Experience a range of cycling activities including Go MTB.

Each team will be awarded a budget of up to £3,000 to put their plan into action when they return from the camp. Previously funded projects.

Cycling Scotland will provide tutor input to support each of the successful pupil cycle champions during the week-long camp.

Successful teams will be required to monitor behaviour change in their school with regular bike rack counts, Hands Up Scotland Survey participation and travel diaries.
