Limerick Smarter Travel encourages a whole school approach to cycle safety and safe travel. There are a wide range of curricular resources available to support schools wishing to raise awareness about cycle safety and cycling to school. These are available from the cycling section of our resource library. One of the best websites to visit relative to cycling education is www.bikewise.co.nz who have a wide range of resources targeting school children.
Further information on cycle training in the study area will be available shortly
Cycle parking is provided to schools via two mechanisms within the study area.
Cycle fun days
The Limerick Smarter Travel School Project delivers 'cycle fun days' to participating schools as part of their participation in the project. These involve a basic introduction to bike safety and maintenance followed by relays designed to promote safer cycling for school children. These events are simple fun events which are not to be considered as training per se but more an opportunity for children to learn more about cycling in general. Please contact our office for further details or visit our cycling initiative section for more details on cycling action days in schools
Cycling Policies for schools
As part of the Limerick Smarter Travel School Project, schools are generally encouraged to develop a cycling policy for their school. This is to ensure that students cycling to school understand what is expected of them as cyclists. A school cycling policy template is provided as a download on this page.
Further information and resources will be uploaded in due course
