The Big Pedal started this week at Lochaber High School in Fort William and runs until the end of term. This is a national initiative aimed at encouraging active travel to school.
Pupils and staff members cycling to school will be offered a choice of free goodies and entered into a daily prize draw. They will also get one entry for each day they cycle into the grand prize draw on the last day of term. First prize is a new bike, donated by Nevis Cycles, while second prize an ipad courtesy of Liberty.
Nevis Range has gifted a family UHI World Cup entry ticket for two adults and four children, and the Highland Bookshop has donated two £50 book vouchers.
Lots of other businesses have also donated prizes, including Off Beat Bikes, Costa, Nevis Sport and the Granite House.
