“ The Story of Peckham BMX. ”
1 WAY UP in 3D is the story of Tre and Quillan, two teenage boys on the road to the BMX World Championships. They hope to escape one of the toughest gang neighborhoods in London with the only thing they have – a bike.
1 Way Up in 3D demonstrates the universal power of sports to transform children’s lives.
According to Jardine Finn, the Sports Development Manager for a London borough:”The local councillors had some
reservations about a BMX project being developed in H&F [Hammersmith & Fulham borough]. After seeing the video [of 1 Way Up] and the positive activity and smiling faces they knew that this could be a great opportunity for local young people.”
The new track was officially unveiled in June 2014 and is open to all BMX riders, including the local BMX Club that was just established!
Joe McTague, the Programme Leader at UK charity Access Sport says, “We regularly use the footage from 1 Way Up to enthuse people about BMX. Whilst shaping phase 2 of the BMX Legacy Project the use of this trailer contributed greatly to 7 different London boroughs joining in partnership with Access Sport to develop a BMX club in their borough. 1 Way Up demonstrates what can be achieved when you empower inspirational local people, a message at the heart of what Access Sport is all about.”
