The bikes that make it possible...

A Lea valley Velopark (LVV) Condor track bike in action last Tuesday 16th June during the second of 9 trial sessions. There was good attendance from Hackney's young riders again with plenty of support from parents and our fine volunteer track coaches for these events; Neil Irons, Martin Elliot & Tai Suleyman (Hackney BMX)
HASVC would like to thank LVV for providing the support they do in the shape of a favourable 'job lot' fee for track bike hire, helmets & gloves. Without this these world class sporting experiences would not be possible for Hackney's young people and their coaching team.

First night track time - 9th June 2015

First night nerves for first night buzz? Answers on a post card the lead coach I found it more of a buzz!
28 young riders came down from all over Hackney and by all accounts hugely enjoyed the opportunity. It was great to see everyone getting on, helping and encouraging each other. There were absolute beginners Cycling Club Hackney's outreach group and our established crew; working as planned in two sections, experienced/intermediate and intermediate/beginners.
Many thanks to our admin support Martine and the CCH coaches Neil Irons and Martin Elliot who did a very good job advising and supporting riders. Also a big thank you must go to John Scripts and all the Staff at Lea Valley Velopark as well as our main funder Young Hackney of Hackney Council.
