BMX Star visits Brent’s Big Pedal Star School!

The Big Pedal, Sustrans’ annual national cycling to school competition, went off with a bang in Brent this year.

Salusbury Primary slammed the Large Primary School Category, winning  the Top Slot in Brent!

They came  in 4th place in London and 47th place nationally.

over 50% of the school were on their bikes and scooters, as well as parents, little sista’s and bro’s, and lots of the school staff too.

Keelan Phillips, the world champion flatland BMX Star was the top Brent prize! They lapped up their well deserved victory!

Keelan spent a whole day at the school. He performed 2 shows and held workshops for the top Big Pedal classes, teaching them how to do some of the tricks that he performs. Children were in awe at his superb show of skills and were super excited to have a go on Keelan’s bikes. They picked up the basics really well and are now inspired to keep learning more. The whole school has gone BMX mad!
