The Riderz 2013 – Travel planning art
On tour with the Riderz again, this time on an epic 27 date school tour from Fraserburgh to Dumfries.
The Riderz is an education project designed to encourage children to cycle to school. School receive a full day of cycling excitement including a cycle stunt show, a story teller and an art activity.
The Riderz gave me a hard challenge – to come up with a creative and exciting way to engage children with cycle travel planning.
The children worked with maps of their local area and could plan the safest route for them to cycle to school from their homes. They used mini bikes and ink pads to mark their trail and decorated their maps with stickers and pattern.
