Calling young creatives on wheels - T-shirt designing competition

We have set up a cycling trip to the Barbican Centre to see the art show; 'Basquiet: Boom for Real'  This follows the success of our cultural visit by bike to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre to see a performance of The Taming of the Shrew.
Like last time two groups will be leaving from our Concorde & Elsdale bases to meet at the Barbican Centre. 
At the exhibition participants are to take part in our T-shirt designing competition creating designs for all or any one of our cycling bases; Concorde, Elsdale, Fawcet and Pearson Street. Sketching materials will be supplied. We anticipate that the works of Basquiat will be inspirational and fire up our riders’ imaginations!
For a consent form and more about this visit please contact either Keir or Neil:

Grand day out at the club champs

The team captains podium
 1/10/17

 A grand day out was had by all the CCH members on Sunday who made their way over to a blustery Hoghill for the CCHackney Club Championships 2017. Once the rider numbers were known and looking at the weather it was decided to change the programme to a series of individual time trials followed by a team event with all the riders taking part in an Italian pursuit.

The event had a very convivial atmosphere but once the riders were on the start line the race faces appeared. it was great to see the various strands of CCH come together and I'm looking forward to more days like this in future.
