For those who were unable to attend let's hope that it becomes another CCH annual tradition and make it next time - good going and roll on 2019 - happy new year!

Young Hasbi gets younger Omar on the way with his first bike - seasons greetings!

Two of Hackney boys have been brought together by CC Hackney & Interlinkx CiC. They are from two housing estates (E5 & E9) and don't know each other yet but are connected by being club members and cycle enthusiasts. Eleven year old Hasbi pictured below is a regular attendee at Fawcett Estate's bike maintenance club. He volunteered his session time to renovate an old discarded bike to donate to Kingsmead Estate's eight year old Omar, of Concorde Bike Club. This is Omar's first ride, he is most happy with it and wants to send Hasbi his thanks and very best wishes.

The refurbished heating at Elsdale Community Hall kept the chill away  with everyone starting the xmas party season off in fine style.

CCH youth track bikes get converted by Interlinkx CiC

Seven down three to go!
Ten CCH youth track bikes are being converted from fixed wheel track bikes (with limited use applications) into regular use single speed freewheelers. This is mainly so that if any young attendees arrive without bikes they can still enjoy rides with their club on quality and youth size related cycles.
Most of the costs for this operation were paid for by a small Young Hackney grant of £500.00 via Hackney Council. Other costs including labour have been covered by Interlinkx CiC. The amount for each bike in the end was £78.30 - this is good economy & money well spent.
