Saturday morning 'Team Hackney' training sessions

Saturday 7th November '09
The 8-12 year old training group were joined today for the first time by our new 'B' rider or intermediate section in Finsbury Park. Parents and coaches over saw exercises on a bright early winter morning. After a sufficient number of laps were made of the roadway at a reasonable pace, the two groups came together to share refreshments in the park cafe by the boating lake. Then it was time to head back to Clapton via Clissold Park.
