On Tuesday 8th September 2020 CC Hackney will begin delivery work and the live partnership with NHS East London Foundation Trust. Out to prove Prevention is better (and more cost effective) than cure, this is to do with mental health in the form of ongoing adult sessions for those benefiting from a weekly bike ride and social get together. The Solution Bike Hub is based at our Concorde Centre station on Kingsmead Estate E9 and has been planned as one pilot for the NHS Triple Aim Project. It is expected to be a model example for other positive and tailored clubs to follow (not just cycling) NHS ELFT Triple Aim; looking to help people at risk of deteriorating mental health near home, in their own neighbourhoods. CCH's Solution Bike Hub - serving in the community as an ongoing club that supports those at risk of declining mental health, also people who could use some assistance during recovery from illness.
2020 summer months lockdown:
CCH Supporting Essential Workers
Two of our sites Fawcett Estate and Elsdale Hall, during May, June & July; supported essential workers and the local community many of whom had their cycles checked & repaired by CC Hackney. This service was mainly to be restricted to government defined essential workers, some spares were charged at cost price, labour f.o.c. This project was supported by Hackney Council Housing dept. and our qualified CC Hackney volunteer staff. Many thanks to all who who made this project a success and brought us all closer together during these challenging times - CCH together in the community. The project raised awareness of the club and has attracted new members - so during the autumn months we will keep it going on a voluntary fortnightly basis at Elsdale on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month 11am -1pm.
Club Rides news July 2020
Dear CC Hackney Members,
Following British Cycling's latest Covid 19 regulation up date I'm writing to underline the key points that need to to be in mind before going on CCH club runs.
To stay within public health rules (and insured for BC members) riders can now go in groups of up to six but must maintain a 2m distance while cycling at all times (front to back and side to side) Club runners will need to organise into smaller groups if more than six riders turn up. When meeting at a cafe with outdoor seating, please occupy different tables to keep the distance required. It's within the guidelines to ride with different members (bubbles not necessary) Please bear in mind that on the road you are representing all cyclists and CC Hackney. The public do take note of behaviours and some could use incidents of breaking regulations as a reason to complain about all cyclists. We don't want this and I'd rather not receive a direct complaint to CC Hackney management. I'm sure you understand this concern, we're getting there, stay safe and enjoy the next level!
Here are links to the latest regulations and a pdf "The way forward'
Also here's our membership page if you're yet to sign up for 2020/21
Very best wishes,
Keir Apperley - CCH Manager

2019 Supported by the William Wates Memorial Trust
Cycling Club Hackney is proud to announce our latest funding supporter; the William Wates Memorial Trust. This is coming into effect from September 2019 with a three year agreement for the club to extend and continue developing its community outreach aspects. Fittingly the key fund raising activity for the Trust is an event called Le loop (or the Wates fund raisers Tour de France!) The Wates Group is a family owned construction company founded in 1897 that established the WWMT fund in 1998. We are excited by the prospect of being in a better position to be more able to realise our shared aims of reaching the whole community; cycling and quality sporting opportunities for all in Hackney and East London.

E) 2010 & 2012 Hackney Sports Personality of the Year and one of the best cycling clubs in Hackney.
Cycling Club Hackney is dedicated to promoting cycling and cycle sport for all levels and ages. Our main club rides run every Sunday, where members and newcomers meet and socialise - check the calendar for upcoming events. We have an active youth section catering for young people between the ages 8 and 18, as well as our senior and women's representation. Our popular circuit race series the CC Hackney Primaveras runs every spring at Lea Valley Velopark, and we also organise and run men's and women's road races.
CC Hackney is run by volunteers. There is an expectation for all members to do their bit from time to time but especially being on point when the club has a calendar event to deliver.
