Pupils got on their bikes to encourage their peers to stay active on the way to school.
Children from Gilbert Colvin Primary School in Stafford Avenue, Clayhall, took part in Redbridge Council’s Cycle Challenge, which saw more than 100 pupils cycle to school.
The young cyclists, who also attended a special bikers breakfast, have been logging their journeys into an interactive whiteboard application to compete with other classes.
The school has seen the number of children cycling to school grow last term, which has helped children stay active but also reduce congestion at the beginning and end of school days.
School cover supervisor Karen Burton said: “Local residents and parents have told us that there was a definite improvement in the traffic and parking situation this week.
