June 2, 2011 - PRLog -- The average primary school journey is an easily cycled 1.5 miles. So why not avoid the congestion and stress of driving to school and cycle instead? It’s better for you, your kids and the environment!

To help out Going Going Bike has teamed up with The Place2Be and Babboe for a special Family Promotion (2 – 10 June). There will be loads of special offers on everything kids, mums and dads need to get cycling, including:
•   Special auction of four Babboe bikes with bids starting at £250 (RRP over £1000)
•   Up to 20 per cent discount on bikes, lights, helmets and even helmet covers
•   All profits will be donated to The Place2Be

In addition, the Going Going Bike blog will focus on the family. Articles on the benefits of cycling to school, a kids’ bicycle sizing guide and how to get the most out of bicycles will be published.

With 70 per cent of girls and 55 per cent of boys predicted to be overweight or obese by 2050 the importance of daily exercise cannot be understated. Local authorities like the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea are increasingly seeing cycling as part of the solution as well as supporting the Going Going Bike Family Promotion in their schools.

Cllr Mrs. Frances Taylor, chairman for Public Transport and Road Safety Committee – said: “Cycling to and from school is an easy and fun way for children to get some exercise at the start and end of the day. I am very pleased to see so many children cycling in the borough as part of our Bike It initiative.”

Remembering the excitement of his first bicycle Andrew Nethercot, co-founder of Going Going Bike, said: “I remember my father getting me my first bike. It was a really exciting moment and I still have the old Peugeot racer today. Cycling is a great way for kids to get out and about and enjoy themselves and I hope that our Family Promotion will encourage more parents to get their kids cycling.”

So don’t stick your kid in the car and sit in the traffic. Liberate the whole family by getting on your bike and pedalling that mile to school!

The Place2Be [http://www.theplace2be.org.uk]
Founded in 1994, The Place2Be is an award winning charity that works in schools to improve the emotional wellbeing of children, young people and their families. Today the charity is reaching 58,000 children in 172 schools across the UK.
A child’s early years have a huge impact on their long-term development and prospects. Low academic achievement, truancy, eating disorders, drug abuse and anti-social behaviour - these can all be the consequence of leaving children’s problems unaddressed. The Place2Be counselling services help children to cope with their problems and allow them to concentrate on their learning. Schools with The Place2Be see less disruption in class, better grades and fewer exclusions. The result is happier children with better prospects. And that benefits everyone.


Babboe [www.babboe.co.uk]
The Babboe was created by a group of Dutch parents who wanted to have a quality cargo bike for their families for a reasonable price. They looked at the other products on the market, made improvements and added features that are important for families. With the help of an engineering company they created an excellent product that is great looking, fun, practical and easy to use. Babboe is a real success story, over 12,000 bikes have been sold and the Babboe is now the number one selling cargo bike in Holland.
