STUDENTS at The Armidale School went toe-to-toe with principal Murray Guest in the Beat the Boss bike competition.
Competitors jumped on the bike that records the amount of watts generated in 30 seconds.
TAS principal Murray Guest said it was important to get the kids involved in physical activity.
“I thought it would be good to be a part of that too,” he said.
“I had a go, and that’s the encouragement we give to all the kids, to get in there and have a go at any physical activity they can.”
The competition was part of the school’s annual Bike Day.
“It’s a combination of bike safety and physical activity, be safe, but be active at the same time,” Mr Guest said.
Year 5 student Toby Inglis said he thought he could give Mr Guest a run for his money.
“He [Mr Guest] went alright I suppose, he went better than I thought,” he said.
