New cycle initiative for Les Landes School

13 May 2022

Les Landes has become the first school in Jersey to launch an official cycle to school initiative.

The 'Cycling Crocodile' has been created following an increase in cycling during the pandemic. The school has also created a club for children and families to cycle safely to and from school as a group.

Led by parent volunteers who have received training from Jersey Sport, the initiative aims to reduce traffic flow, increase a love of cycling, and provide a healthy start to the school day.

Headteacher of Les Landes, Vicki Charlesworth, said: "We are pleased to have launched this great cycling initiative and get more children finding a love of cycling.  We have already had a great sign up so far and we are hopeful that this will keep increasing.

"The route we have chosen goes through the lanes of St Ouen and is incredibly safe. We are intending to repeat this route at the end of the day and consider alternative starting points as more children and families sign up."
