The start of autumn term marks the start of the Hackney Primary Schools CyclingLeague 2014-15 season. We have nine events planned for the League this year with a possible 10th event being inter borough racing with schools from our neighbouring boroughs. This year we plan to put on three of the events at Lea Valley Velopark in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, on the lovely smooth road circuit they have over there.
Two new schools have already expressed an interest in joining the league so welcome to Parkwood Primary School and Sir Thomas Abney Primary School, and I'm sure they will be followed by others soon. Cycling Club hackney and Young Hackney continue to support the league and are currently sourcing some new roller racing equipment that as well as being used for a league event will be taken into schools so they can get a taste of cycle racing.
