Where serious cycle apparel meets London's East End with a bang. Weekend one of the Cyclocross season is done with the fun of fast and dry courses lending themselves to riders, with speed in their legs, from Road. The usual big thank you goes to the volunteers from the Essex Roads club and Brighton Excelsior who put on well organised events and made the first weekend one to remember. Hackney GT were out in force competing in both Eastern and London Leagues as promised. Next weekend provides us at Hackney GT HQ with a more difficult choice as races are all on Sunday. The Eastern League heads to Colchester’s Hilly Fields Park and the London League visits Penshurst Off Road Centre. Both venues are favourites so it’s going to be a tough choice. Ready for those winter cross outings we have the new Alpine Bobble Hat in addition to our classic fleece jackets. Though the Cyclocross season in now underway there’s still plenty of time to enjoy the summer sun and watching the stars of the peloton. The Tour of Britain traverses the country all week finishing in London at the weekend whilst the Vuelta reaches it’s climax in Santiago de Compostela. Highlights for both are on ITV4 each evening. In addition, as we love a party, check out our events page for some of our musical happenings including FRI. 19 SEPT. | ARRIBA LA CUMBIA!.
