PEDAL-POWERED smoothies are on the menu after Priory Community School, an Academy Trust, became the first school in North Somerset to benefit from initiatives to promote healthy and sustainable travel.

The Active Travel to School project was launched with students trying out a unique pedal-powered smoothie maker bike which showed how to convert energy through pedal power into a healthy breakfast option.

This project is a partnership between North Somerset Council and UK charity Sustrans, as part of the Local Sustainable Transport Fund, Travel West initiative.
