Boxgrove Summer Cycle
Between 21st May to 6th June 2021
To coincide with Sports Week at Boxgrove and Cycling UK's Bike Week we are launching the Boxgrove Summer Cycle! Children are encouraged to get on their bikes and cycle as far as they can between Friday 21st May and Sunday 6th June. There will be a form available on the school website for you to tell us how far the children have cycled, so that we can log our combined total. Mileage by parents doesn't count!
Boxgrove dad Luke Bishop is very impressively cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats in September, so let's see if together we can cycle even further than that!
To add an element of competition, we will see which of our 4 houses can travel the furthest, and the staff will also log their distances to compete against the houses.
Update on Event:-
During this event you donated over 30 bikes, cycled a combined 1146.66km and raised a total of £739! The money raised helps, but the main focus of this event was to get the children out cycling! Once reception child cycled 54km over 5 days!
This Event Is Sponsored By:-
Decathlon in Guildford are very generously supporting this event by offering 10% discount on all of their servicing and repairs appointments between 17th May and 6th June - you just need to show them your Studybugs app to prove you attend Boxgrove.

They are hoping to give the school some vouchers for new equipment after the event as well, depending how many bookings they get!
We have over 200 new lights, bells and reflectors from Decathlon as well, which will be available w/c 17th May 2021.
