Peckham BMX Club London began in 2004 when radio Dj and Tv Presenter and entrepreneur Ck Flash was approached by Southwark Council and Edwards bike shop in London to take on the challenge of clearing a patch of wasteground on Naylor Road Peckham. After some back breaking work and opening with just 4 kids the club was born, & grew to becoming the Number 1 Club in the UK in 2008.
It?s produced world champions men and women podium top 3 and sent over eight riders which is 70% of the British cycling team, an incredible achievement in such a short space of time and one that bears testament to the clubs mentality.
We have consistently over 150 members and 100 of them ride every week with small kids age 4 to our elite Junior riders that range from 16 to 25 & over 40 Master riders
The New full size track opened on August 16th 2013 in Burgess Park in South London and all are welcome to come down and test it out. There will be taster sessions for kids and adults throughout the day and prominent local speakers in attendance that come to the club to talk to the kids.
