The base and reach of the CCH is highly valued and seen as an asset going forward when we are aiming to make our sport even more accessible to all. This year CC Hackney is looking at becoming a charity organisation in order to continue being effective at delivering our development work in the community.

CCH Primavera Races

Our annual spring circuit races are set and ready to start. As ever support to help deliver key events is expected as part of being in the club. Racing or not, the CCH Primavera Races are good fun and exciting occasions, also a chance to learn about race management and socialise. It's important to ensure that these races go ahead well without putting too much stress on our events team due to a lack of CCH volunteers. Please contactneil@cyclingclubhackney.co.uk to register your interest.

Concorde riders visit Fen Court's roof top garden - 120 Fenchurch Street London EC3



Last Saturday CCH's Concorde group took a ride to the City of London to visit Fen Court's roof top garden on Fenchurch Street. High up on the 15th floor the views across London are outstanding and all agreed the trip was well worth it.
