This year's Young Hackney primary School Cycling League reached it's conclusion last friday with a Grass track event at Hackney Downs. I can't remember a hotter drier day on the Downs for grass track - super fast if a bit bumpy for riding on.
The year 4 heats were first - two heats each for the girls and boys. In the girls <erle from Gayhurst won heat 1 from Charlie of Jubilee whilst in heat 2Margo from Gayhurst came 1st from Agynes of Jubilee to set up an all Gayhurst/Jubilee final. Merle took the honours followed by Charlie then Margo.
