Mayor leads Two Mile Ash bike bus pilot

New Mayor Marie Bradburn led 31 children on the first ‘bike bus’ pilot to Two Mile Ash School. 7 parents joined the ride.

“I am delighted to be launching this second pilot as part of MK’s Year of Cycling,” she said. “We know that cycling is not only good for your health, research shows it also makes it more likely you’ll earn good money when you leave school.”

This bike bus initiative is part of a national scheme set up by Sustrans and Schwalbe Tyres, and is made possible in MK by a small grant from MK Community Foundation.

The Two Mile Ash bike bus will run on Fridays until mid-July, leaving the ‘Wind in the Willows’ Pentworth Park at 8.10am and picking up students at different points along the route. Any parent interested should contact teacher Jake Saville contact Organiser Tom Bulman at cyclingmk@citizensuk.org, tel 07962 838685.

A similar scheme began at Bushfield School on 24th May (photo story), and it is hoped other MK schools will follow in September.
