CCH to visit Kampala CC - November 2010 - Uganda, East Africa

This November a CC Hackney link is planned to be personally established with Kampala Cycling Club...

"This small step is actually part of a new initiative that is hoped will lead on to a youth exchange project with the working title: CC Hackney and Kampala CC Youth Exchange 2010-2012.
The idea of this venture is for a combined Interlinkx CIC Youth Bike Maintenance Club and Cycling Club Hackney sports delegation to visit Kampala in 2011. There they will invite a team of Ugandan cycling enthusiasts back over to share in the 2012 London Olympic experience that will be happening in and around Hackney come 27 July-12 Aug (Olympic Games) and 29 Aug-9 Sept (Paralympic Games)

We're looking forward to more planning, cultivating relations, and fund raising to help make this possible for our partners in Uganda and our young cycling volunteers in Hackney.
The first phase of this activity is being supported by the Hackney Homes Staff Alpine Challenge Team, who will be helping during a reconnaissance and fact finding trip this November."
