Pupils from a Wandsworth primary school became cycling superheroes for a day to fundraise for charity.

Children from Albemarle Primary School, Princes Way got into character to collect money for Sustrans, a walking and cycling charity.

The day was part of Sustrans Big Pedal 2018, an inter-school cycling and scooting competition for primary and secondary schools.

The Big Pedal 2018 is a UK-wide event to get more young people cycling and scooting to school, backed by world record breaking cyclist Mark Beaumont.

The event ran from Monday, April 23 to Friday, May 4 and saw children, parents and teachers across the UK leave their cars at home and get on their bikes and scooters for their journeys to and from school.

During the ten days participating schools went head to head to make the most journeys by bike or scooter.

The children also attended a Biker’s Breakfast, took part in a ‘Bling your Bike’ competition and had free bike safety checks by Dr Bike.

Theresa Moses, headteacher at Albemarle, said “At Albemarle, we are always looking at exciting ways to motivate the children and fuel their love for learning, as well as getting families and staff involved in ways to become more active in how we travel to school. We are proud to have been awarded Transport for London’s Gold level accreditation in recognition of our commitment to safe and sustainable travel to school.”
