Youth indoor cycling competition in East London
On Saturday 6th February, the Cycling Club Hackney (CCH) in partnership with British Cycling’s Bill Wright invited youngsters to come and race each other at an indoor cycling event.
The winners amongst the 18 competitors went home with prizes from London Fields Cycles, British Cycling and Bikefix.
14-year old Femi Valentine says,
‘I was happy to win here because it was my first race ever. I’ve been training for this on the roads but this was different and I need to concentrate. Now I’m looking forward to when the weather gets better and I can get out more and join more track races with CCH.’
Hackney Homes sponsored the venue and also presented CCH with a travel award. The award is in recognition of CCH’s achievement when they cycled across the Alps in a fundraising effort in summer 2009.
