Excellent Extreme Bike Show

19 July 2017 (by admin)

What a treat!

It was lovely to invite Danny Butler into school on Tuesday afternoon to share his biking expertise in the Extreme Bike Show. The team travelled down from Staffordshire to entertain the school. The pupils came 2nd in Gloucestershire during the Big Pedal and were awarded this prize. They had been looking forward to seeing the show for a couple of months. Firstly, we were introduced to the riders and shown some of the close control needed to be a stunt rider. Next we watched in amazement as Danny wheeled from 3 different height podiums. After this he headed to the bards and bounced up on to the top of his van! We gave him a countdown 5-4-3-2-1 and he bounced down from the roof! Finally he did the high jump with his bike and we had a round of questions from the pupils. A great afternoon - our thanks to ThinkTravel for funding the visit.
