CCH youth track bikes get converted by Interlinkx CiC

Seven down three to go!
Ten CCH youth track bikes are being converted from fixed wheel track bikes (with limited use applications) into regular use single speed freewheelers. This is mainly so that if any young attendees arrive without bikes they can still enjoy rides with their club on quality and youth size related cycles.
Most of the costs for this operation were paid for by a small Young Hackney grant of £500.00 via Hackney Council. Other costs including labour have been covered by Interlinkx CiC. The amount for each bike in the end was £78.30 - this is good economy & money well spent.  

CC Hackney - encouraging and developing riders from the whole community in the area.

CCH Youth Hill Climb 2018

13/10/18 A sunny but blustery autumn day was witness to much huffing and puffing  in Springfield Park - this could only mean one thing - it's Hill Climb season.

Pinning numbers on

The first riders to tackle the hill were the the under 10s - if you don't know it check it here on Strava. They all tried their hardest. Vincent came first for the boys whilst Violet on her first outing with the club finished first girl. All times down below.

Next up were the under12s with the top five of them all going under 30 seconds victory went to Serafino with a new U12s course record of 21.17 seconds

Next came the u14s and bunch of really close times - Conrad topped them at 21.74seconds. Serafino was starting to look like being fastest rider on the day. Full results at the bottom.

In the U16 girls Charlie had the edge over Maisie at 21.54 seconds - still three tenths off the time set by Serafino. Full results at the bottom.

However in the U16 boys Kai was gunning for the record and set the fastest time of the day at 19,98 seconds - the wind maybe against him. He was so fast it looks like Milo - who took all these excellent photos - missed him going up the hill.
Full results at the bottom.

Not to be outdone some of the parents gave it a go perhaps then realising that the ideal size and power to weight ratio for hill climbing is that of a teenager. Full results at the bottom.
