Brixton BMX Club 40 lap fundraiser

Brixton BMX Club 40 lap fundraiser
We did it
On 20th October 2021 we successfully raised £216 with 8 supporters in 14 days

We're raising money to upgrade the racetrack in Brockwell Park.

 The club has been going for 40 years but has seen a lot of growth since lockdown and Team GB's Tokyo Olympic medals. I help with the Novices and our Special Educational Needs riders.

Together the club wants to ride the length of the country on laps at the track to raise £30,000. The track is always open to everyone, so the improvements benefit the whole community.

I damaged my eye in a crash in June so I ride now with an eye patch. I am looking forward to doing my 40 laps. As riding pedalling is easy, I'll be doing it without pedalling, around 16km of jumps and manuals.

And if BMX coaching doesn't work out for me I can always try a career on the high seas, arrrrgh!
