OTHER EVENTS

THE 10th RONDE CHELMSFORD - Our annual guided 160km ride round the lanes of Essex will take place on Sunday April 30th. This year we will be riding in memory of Rebecca Ventris who died in October from cancer, wife of CCH stalwart Bjorn and mother of Matty and Anna who both race for CCH. We will be fund raising for a cancer charity and would like to see our youth riders take part in the return leg from the Generals Arms in Little Baddow so we will need help transporting them out there. We meet at the Lea Valley Ice Rink after 8am and leave at 8.30am and the ride settles in to groups of differing speed once we pass High Beech, meeting up for lunch at the Generals Arms in Little Baddow. Route sheets are handed out on the day. More details on this to follow.

Xmas party at Nightingale

Pulling crackers at the xmas party
 CCH youth riders at the Nightingale enjoyed a xmas party after training last Saturday. The mild weather meant we could set up the roller racing rig outside along with the pedal powered sound system and pedal powered smoothie maker - even it had been cold there was plenty to keep the ridders warm. Inside there were tables groaning with food which somehow disappeared quite quickly.
Have a great xmas and we'll see you back in the new year on the 7th.






Oscar's phone provided the xmas tunes through the pedal powered sound system

Jess represents CCH at the National Talent Camp

Last weekend Jess Feeney Davies was oe of the attendees at the British Cycling National Talent Camp at Loughborough University - here's a few words from Jess on what sounded like an excellent experience -



Hi 

I just wanted to say thank you so much for giving me the opportunity for the talent camp at Loughborough! It was one of the best experiences ever!!! Surrounded my others, especially other girls who share the same passion for sport! Despite having to get up at 5:45am & not getting into rooms till 10:30pm, I managed to learn so much about everything! 
I learnt about myself as a person and as a coach, through sessions with British Cycling and Youth sport trust on 'coaching philosophy', I was with a complete group of strangers for four days but at the end they definitely did not feel like strangers!! We bonded and learnt so much from each other, its hard to sum up the experience but it was a very very excellent experience and I have taken so much from it and will definitely be using in my coaching, my future plans and just my life!!! 
Thanks again, 
- Jess

CCH BMX group at LVV

 

Images of CCH's BMX group enjoying world class quality track time at the Lea Valley Velopark last Saturday. The session was tutored by Joe of Hackney BMX Club. As well as doing 'flat land' warm up drills around bunny hopping and manuals, riders learned and practiced techniques for cornering berms and tackling competition gate starts. 
A new programme (CCH BMX Group Pt2) is set to start again in the 3rd week of January. Eight riders from this group have expressed an interest in signing on for BMX races at novice category in 2017.
