The Big Pedal


On Wednesday 4th March 2015, Kingsbury School Sports Partnership teamed up with Brent Council and Sustrans to bring The Big Pedal to Kingsbury High School.

Year 8 students were able try out a range of weird and wonderful bikes including tandem bicycles, scooters and penny-farthings; a BMX track was assembled on site where students learnt to gain greater control of a BMX when faced with various obstacles and terrain; and students also had the option of trying a bikeability, cycling proficiency, taster course.

Andrew Cremin, Sustrans Bike It Plus Officer, said “The biggest attraction for most had to be the BMX pump track with lots of pupils getting to try out their skills on the wooden track. The best part was seeing those not too sure about the whole thing getting stuck in, trying the track and finding some hidden talents for BMX that they never knew they had.”
