Tao wins in Belgium with British Cycling's International Talent Team

Great job Tao well done lad, not to forget all the BC Talent Team who annihilated the field in the Kermesse. The harder they come? Not many much more than Hackney's ace youth rider Mr T. But today Tao Geoghegan Hart is back in school working hard for his certs!

Saturday and Sunday racing and events

Liam rides in his first cat'4 race.

CCH riders turned out again in force for the Eagle RC spring criteriums at Hoghill last Saturday 16th April taking part in large fields - which may account for the results still not being posted as o yet. Photos here on Andy's flickr stream.

Rider's queue up to take part in a Go-Ride skills test.

The following day saw CCH organise a bike event at Stoke Newington Common run by the users group SNUG. Around thirty children took part in a Go-Ride skills test against the clock with the winners getting prizes and certificates. With all the fantastic facilities for cycling opening up or coming soon to our neighborhood it's easy to forget that the majority of cyclists started off in a nearby park. By supporting grass roots initiatives such as this CCH will do its bit to ensure the Olympic legacy facilities have ready and willing users.

Some of the prize winners.

A Busy Weekend of Racing for CCH

Clem heading off down the Hogberg.

Last weekend - the 9th and 10th of April saw a busy weekend of racing for CCH riders. Out west Alex Peters was riding in the 2011 Junior Tour of Bristol, he came 5th on the 1st stage and 3rd on the second to claim 4th spot overall just 37 seconds off the winner - full details here.

The juniors turned up en masse on their bikes.

Meanwhile close to home 14 of our Juniors and Youth racers rode in the East London Velo Rumble at Hoghill across all categories, top spot being leonard Mitchell's 3rd in the U10s. Later in the afternoon three shall we say older riders rode in the cat' 3/4 followed by a very good showing from Clem Berril taking 3rd place in the E/1/2 race.
Full details here.

Sunday found Rhys Howels working hard in the National B - E1/2/3 road race as part of the ERRL league. Rhys was showing strongly in the lead group of around 20 riders in a very strong field. Unfortunately a mechanical problem saw him dropped after 80km of racing. A quick look at the Eastern Road Race League standings shows CCH still top albeit on equal points with St Ives CC. Our top riders are off to a flyer this season and with more riders from CCH soon to join them and our upcoming race on May 21st in the league we have a lot more to look forward to this season.

Would you like to see the raising of the cycling game in Uganda?

Introducing CCH's new rider residing in Kampala, Uganda, 'Rockin' Ronnie Mubiru Jarsen writes:

Is It in many minds that at one time the cycling game in Uganda will live up to our dreams?
If you've got cycling dreams like me, please waste no time, start now to do what ever you think can make your vision happen. Everyone has a way to lift our game, even I have mine. First I think it's a good idea to follow in the foot steps of Cycling Club Hackney. How? Better to talk and ask, me too I'm gonna find an answer. When ever I visited CCH's site, so real it was how I admired how to build from the beginning, at the grass roots. To prove it we keep it here with
