London To Brighton - the inclusive CCH Travel Club number 1

North East London Crew 

London To Brighton riding live and direct from Hackney, the all inclusive CCH Travel Club ride number one. This was the first in our ongoing series of trips and visits that will be inclusive for cyclists from the whole community; keeping it together until we get there!  

Sunday 6th September 2020. Our group of cyclists from across London and various clubs met up to make a safe and protective environment for Cycling Club Hackney’s young adult riders; Michael Anuyagu (18) and Chris Miller (19) during their impressive first time - London to Brighton ride. Special thanks going out to fellow organiser and routemaster Karl and our friends from Black Cyclists Network. Together we ensured the day trip was enjoyable and memorable. πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜Ž

CCH & NHS ELFT partnership presents The Solution Bike Hub

On Tuesday 8th September 2020 CC Hackney will begin delivery work and the live partnership with NHS East London Foundation Trust. Out to prove Prevention is better (and more cost effective) than cure, this is to do with mental health in the form of ongoing adult sessions for those benefiting from a weekly bike ride and social get together. The Solution Bike Hub 1 is based at our Concorde Centre station on Kingsmead Estate E9 and has been planned as one pilot for the NHS Triple Aim Project. It is expected to be a model example for other positive and tailored clubs to follow (not just cycling) NHS ELFT Triple Aim; looking to help people at risk of deteriorating mental health near home, in their own neighbourhoods. 

CCH's Solution Bike Hub - serving in the community as an ongoing club that supports those at risk of declining mental health, also people who could use some assistance during recovery from illness.

Summer programme of Activities - CCH “encouraging and developing riders from the whole community in the area”

Two sessions per day on Saturdays and Wednesdays have been running from CCH's Concorde Bike Club on Kingsmead Estate. These have been supported by Young Hackney to great effect and appreciation by our participants. 
The pilot bike maintenance and cycle appreciation club at Victorian Grove Estate N16 - these have been running four morning sessions on Thursdays. Supported by Hackney Housing and the Council's Resident Participation Team, many locals came together with CC Hackney to get their cycles repaired and tuned up. A friendly area with interesting people from all backgrounds - good place! 
While we were out cycling with the group parents Marhawit & Milete borrowed cycles to practice with at their own speed.  
Marhawit learns fast - 30 minutes in and she was coasting and gliding!
