Hi there,

Thank you for your email.

Yes that’s a nice idea, to celebrate 10 years since 2012 London Olympics. Unfortunately as far as the cycling legacy is concerned (Lea Valley Velopark LVV) for CC Hackney, it’s not happened but remains a tantalising facility prospect. It’s been a huge disappointment. LVV has proven to be unaffordable to use so far and inaccessible to the whole community. Worse, management there have never been interested in talking with local cycling club leaders about input ideas and solutions  - definitely not with CC Hackney anyway. Therefore there’s nothing to celebrate, so we’ll keep looking forward and hope for the best.

Kind regards and thanks again,

Keir Apperley

Hi again,
Please see the circular email received earlier this evening from Lea Valley Velopark. A fresh start date with Better GLL at the former 2012 Olympic venue is finally happening. Hoping for the best and a change to something better for everyone there. Btw we at CC Hackney had been hopeful that this venue would also become an education centre for coaches and community development in general. Maybe now this is it - (cycle) sport for all. 

Changes to the operation of our venues

As a valued member we wanted to let you know that from 1 April Greenwich Leisure Ltd (who trade as Better) will be operating Lee Valley VeloPark. 


Better, who are a charitable social enterprise, have 30 years’ experience running community facilities and services across the UK and put community at the heart of everything they do – read more about their story here.


Due to this change there will be a transfer of your customer data to Better and we’ll let you know once this transfer has taken place.


Your data

Your data is precious and as we work to handover to Better, everything will be processed in accordance with Data Protection regulations. Upon handover, your customer information will be passed to Better and they’ll become the new data controller.


Your account holds the details of any accreditations that you hold and is used to make the booking process easier. The data transfer is vital to ensure you can continue to enjoy the activities you want without any disruption to service.


Supporting our customers

We understand that this change may mean that you don’t wish for your data to be transferred to Better. If you don’t want to have your data moved across to the new provider please complete this form within the next seven days.


We’ll be in touch

We’ll send you a reminder to let you know when we’ll be handing over to Better in the next few weeks.


Thank you for your support.
