The 22nd of May 2011 saw the start of the CCH Hackney Grass Track league with an event at the Well Street Common Festival producing some close racing by young and old at the end of a very busy weekend for CCH members.

After the individual timed laps the Under 8's line up for a scratch race.

Whilst some of us were racing on home soil Tao was off winning again in Belgium and for those youngsters who wonder how he manages to do that remember he started off racing in Hackney's parks too. Full results and league placings here.

CCH-Bulmer Road Race big success

The start of the 1st CCH road race at Bulmer

The CCH- Bulmer Road Race held on Saturday 21st of May was hailed as a great success by all involved - the riders loved the race and course, the ERRL and BC were impressed with the organisation of the event - see here - and the locals were more than pleased with the whole days events put on by CCH. A great big thank you then to everyone who made it happen.

So many CCH members and friends made it out to Bulmer to help set up the cyclist's breakfast and juniors event on the green -
some members then rode the course before the race

whilst others got busy setting up the catering at the HQ at AFC Sudbury's ground.

Many members were involved in setting up and marshalling the course

The racing took place in lovely countryside in very warm conditions

The winner Mark Howard of PCH - full results here.

Important message to all members and friends of CCH - your help is needed for our innaugral road race at Bulmer near Sudbury on the 21st of May. The race starts at 2.30pm but we will be out there from early morning assessing the course and laying on a breakfast for the villagers of Bulmer. CCH juniors will be doing some exhibition racing on the village green and then there may be time to ride the 13.6 mile course before the race starts. We have any number of jobs that need filling by club members - from line judges and marshalls to catering and driving. Please let us know if you can make it on the day as soon as possible. It is our intention to really put CCH on the map through a well run race that is well attended by the locals. Our riders Clem, Rhys, Alex and Ben in the Eastern Road Race League have already gained CCH a lot of notice through their fantastic efforts lets help them along by putting on the best show.

The second group return from the 4th Round Chelmsford for a pint at the Princess of Wales

Also well done to all those who rode the Round Chelmsford - remember to take up your membership of CCH if you haven't already done so. See left for form.
