YHPSCL finale at Lea Valley Velopark circuit 2/7/21

The riders set off on pre- race practise

The years 2020 - 21 will be remembered for many things but hopefully a group of cyclists will remember that they continued to ride and took part in the Young Hackney Primary Schools Cycling League at a time when there was so little for them to participate in. Unfortunately not all the schools could make it to the Velopark for the finale but as these excellent photos can testify we had plenty of riders taking part. The six teams attending were Gayhurst, Benthal, Kingsmead, Mandeville, JuBilee and Millfields. many thanks to Young Hackney for there continued support of he league and its aims to introduce young people to cycle sport I its varying forms. Scroll down through the race photos - many thanks to Sean - for the results and final league standings.
