Alex Peters signs for Team Sky along with Tao Geoghagan Hart as Stagiaires

Alex Peters and Tao Geoghagan Hart have professional contracts for the world beating, World Tour Team Sky. Alex has signed a two year contract from 2016. His first race in Sky kit will be the Ride London-Surrey Classic taking place this Sunday 2nd August.
This is CC Hackney calling on all of Hackney's cycling fans to come down town to support and cheer Alex on during his big day on home ground - at the next level. Tao's races will be up in due course, get ready!   
Ever since the 110km training rides and those 'educational visits' we used to do (when Alex and Tao were growing at CCH) it's been steady but dedicated little steps all the way, for both of them.

Well done lads - keep it coming:)

2015 Balfour Beatty London Youth Games - teamwork works.

Following up on Neil's 2015 London Youth Games Hackney Cycling Team report:
Since winning overall in 2009 & 2010 we've had four years of consistently collecting LYGs cycling medals and narrowly missing out with a 2nd place last year. I'd like to congratulate all of Hackney's riders in the squad and thank every young cyclist at the trials, the parents and coaching staff for their commitment and drive. Thanks and well done also to Lynn Humphrey & Ladi Ajayi of Sports Development at Hackney Council Leisure and Green Spaces for their support and backing for sport in Hackney. Balfour Beatty without whom there would be no games - teamwork works. 

In 2011 after defeat to Richmond and releasing the trophy after two years with it, I said that "we may have lost the cup but we won the future" with our young team at the time. Well the future is here now, look out London because we have the riders and back room staff in Hackney ready to stay with it.

Regarding a celebration dinner we are going for an evening date when we are all in town for mid September; either Tuesday 15th or 25h. This may (should) be a joint celebration with Hackney BMX who also lead the Hackney BMX team to overall victory in this year's LYGs - well done:) yep it's obviously great to be a bike rider from Hackney!

Keir Apperley.

Hackney BMX

A meeting has been had with Hackney BMX's new club secretary Breon DeSoyza and CC Hackney's counterpart. CCH is happy to announce a closer working association with Hackney BMX club who are also 2015 Balfour Beatty London Youth Games winners. 
Some CCH members are already familiar with the presence of British Cycling qualified coach Tai Suleyman at training sessions and also Joe of London Fields Cycles. We are looking forward to more collaborative work up the road/track.
