Scott Hone leads students on a lifetime adventure made of dreams. Almost everybody has ridden a bike but no one rides a bike like Scott. Backwards on the front wheel. Frontwards on the back wheel. Frontwards on the front wheel, backwards and upside-down. Telling the story of his first bike all the way to joining the circus Scott demonstrates how thinking outside the box and trying new things can lead you on a grand adventure through life.
This is the story of how, when Scott was given his first BMX bike, he asked “Is there another way to ride this?” His determination to answer his own question led him first to join the Circus, then tour the world doing BMX tricks on stage in front of thousands.
This is a show about self-discovery designed to encourage students on their own life journey with a can do and what if I, questioning approach. With an incredible finale, six people on the bike at once, Scott’s BMX Trick Bike Show is certain to inspire the next generation.
