A sculpture of cyclist Bradley Wiggins aka ‘the kid from Kilburn’ will be unveiled at a special ceremony next week.
The achievements of the 34-year-old, who grew up in Dibdin House, Kilburn, and attended St Augustine’s School in Oxford Road, are being celebrated by the South Kilburn Trust (SKT) at a special ceremony in Oxford Road.
Sir Bradley CBE, who was knighted last year, became Britain’s greatest ever Olympian after winning four golds, one silver and two bronze medals.
In 2012, he became the first British winner of the French cycling contest since it started in 1903.
The unveiling ceremony will take place on May 19 as part of a special event celebrating south Kilburn organised by SKT.
From 3.30pm – 6.30pm a host of activities will be taking place at St Augustine’s Sport Centre in Oxford Road, including live music and local stalls, creative workshops and food and refreshments.
The sculpture will be unveiled at 4.15pm.
