Tonight was the 1st of 8 races at cyclopark at gravesend. Harrison 1st lap was not good as he had a mechanical. With one lap out, he was allowed to continue the race. Tonight he was feeling the effects of an infection that he had earlier in the week and with two laps to go dropped back from the lead pack to finish the race without contesting.
No racing last weekend, so on Sunday Harrison 10 and Aaron Stone 11 complete a 50 mile bike ride in the Lee Valley Youth cycling club colours.
The ride was in aid of the Js hospice in Chelmsford Essex. The ride took them thought beautiful Essex countryside. Both boys got comments from a number of riders on route for calling cars / pot holes and their bike handling skills.
Quite funny at the end when the kind lady from the Hospice thanked them for doing the ride and asked them if they had done the 15 or 35 mile ride for them to both reply at the same time no the 50, her face was a picture of disbelief.
Well done to the Js Hospice for putting on a good event!
