About Peckham BMX:
“Peckham BMX Club London began in 2004 when local DJ and entrepreneur Ck Flash was approached by Southwark Council and Edwards bike shop to take on the challenge of clearing a patch of wasteground on Naylor Road. After some back breaking work and opening with just 4 kids the club was born, it quickly attracted scores of local children and soon grew to becoming the Number 1 Club in the UK in 2008. An incredible achievement in such a short space of time and one that bears testament to the clubs mentality, the kids determination and CK and fellow coaches inspiration.
With a lot of hard work and support the club was soon challenging for more and is now producing some of the best UK talent, sending over 4 riders to the Olympic Development team with The British Cycling Federation and has created scores of British and National Champions. All this has been done with a tiny quarter sized track in Naylor Road which makes their achievements even more exceptional.”
