Ride your bike

Our campaign consists of promoting the use of a bicycle in our neighborhood. As we live in a private, gated neighborhood, going to school in a bike is extremely safe. Also the school roads get lots of car traffic so promoting bike use would help fix this problem. Furthermore, we believe that riding a bike has benefits for both the environment, physical health and even mental health. In order to promote these ideas we took action with various different activities around the school.
