A former BMX world champion helped youngsters master some stunts of their own.
Mike Mullen, the 1998 World Masterclass Half-pipe champion, visited Isleworth's Ivybridge estate for a sports festival on Saturday (March 7).
The reigning UK BMX Pro Half-pipe champion passed on some of the tricks of his trade before demonstrating his skills by jumping over three brave volunteers, including a police officer.
People also tried their hands at sports ranging from football to self defence at the free event, which featured music and a clothes sale in aid of the BridgeLink Community Centre.
It was held to highlight the weekly sports workshops taking place on the estate in Summerwood Road as part of the Connecting Communities initiative, run by the non-profit organisation Sport Impact.
Hannah Plews, who runs Connecting Communities, said: "Mike was absolutely fantastic, really professional, approachable, and the kids loved him!
"The workshop was incredibly well received by families on the estate, and quite a large number of children took part in the workshop, some with their own bikes and others borrowed bikes that Mike bought along."
The festival included an opportunity for youngsters attending self defence classes on the estate to show off some of the skills they have learnt over the last six months.
Children from Ivybridge Primary School helped run various games and activities throughout the day.
Self defence classes take place at the BridgeLink Community Centre every Tuesday from 6.15pm-7.15pm.
