CC Hackney fund raiser success

By the end of last Friday evening's club auction session, an amazing total of £1823.50p was raised to go towards financially safe guarding the club against overheads and any unforeseen costs going into 2013.
The auction side of the event was coordinated by our Fergal Byrne who had put in a lot of work gathering offers from sponsors and supporters. Offers included a hand made quilt, four nights in a Devon cottage, the cyclist breakfast for two and a uni-cycle. All went under the hammer. Committee member Patrick Field did a sterling job on stage as the auctioneer, doing well to raise the stakes and seal many good deals.

A big thank you must go to Giuliana Molinari and Paul Monks from Core Arts who provided us with their venue for the night and to all those who made bids and put their hands in their pockets. A special mention is due for Anna Hart too who had created and donated a CCH flag and bunting to set the scene.

Eastern Cyclocross Championships

CCh were well represented in the South Eastern/Eastern  Cyclocross champs held at Bethlem Royal In Bromley Kent 0n Sunday 9th December 2012... 
The course was set up by VC Londres and they made some great improvements from the course on which they had staged some early season races. 
The conditions differed from semi-dry in the forest to boggy on the meadow section this made for a good race and riders needed to pick their lines and route with accuracy.
Those who entered were:
U12's Artie = 11th place
U16-14's Louis Byrne = 30th
              Frank Moore = Dnf
              Ned O'Regan= 23rd
Vet 50's Harry Moore = 15th
             Andy O'Regan = 6th

CCH Belgium visit Gent Six 2012

Dear Keir,
I'm writing to tell about our fantastic trip to
Belgium. Firstly I loved the Eurostar as it was my first time in it. It was really fast this made the journey time shorter. I also loved the Van Gogh youth hostel we stayed in. There was good accommodation, delicious breakfast and a nice chill out room where we could play pool. We ate the best Belgian quality chips for lunch and along with that we ate a baguette with salad and chicken for the next day. For dinner we ate a big chicken sandwich which had salad in it with chips and a drink, it was mouth watering.
Brussels we went to bike shops where we were promoting other people to join us to come to London to see what cycling in London is all about. It was really fun to speak French to people in Belgium.
Finally it was the last day where we went to a velodrome in the Flandrian city of Gent, we watched dernie racing and lots of madison racing. This was really inspirational. The best part in the whole trip for me was to meet a pro cyclist by the name of Nolan Hoffman, he rides for South Africa. Nolan gave me tips and advice about track cycling.

Thank you Keir, Jason and Dodi for taking me, I had a really good time in
Belgium – it was great!
