2017 is Interlinkx CiC & CC Hackney's tenth year.

Due to Covid 19 virus all club face to face activities are suspended until further notice. Please check CC Hackney's website for news updates and how to stay in touch during this period.

The news in 2020 is that Interlinkx has been
converted from a community interest company
into a charitable incorporated organisation under the terms of the Charitable Incorporated Organisations (Conversion) Regulations. In the process of conversion, the organisation has changed its name to Cycling Club Hackney CIO. Meanwhile, the community amateur sports club called Cycling Club Hackney has been wound up and has gifted its assets to CC Hackney CiO

Interlinx CiC, was responsible for CC Hackney'sHQ/house and home as well as leading on fund raising
& community outreach. In 2017 was the ten year anniversary since founding in 2007. Our partner organisation
(CC Hackney) came into being later in the same year.

Reporting on Nightingale's YBMP bike for Kampala, Uganda, East Africa

Local young volunteers, Mahmoud Soboh and Jelani Barry get to work on setting-up and preparing one of the clubs bikes (donated by Hackney police) to be shipped to our contact in Kampala, Uganda.
This small step is actually part of a new initiative to lead on to a youth exchange project with the working title: CC Hackney and Kampala CC Youth Exchange 2010-2012.
The idea of this venture is for a combined Interlinkx CIC Youth Bike Maintenance Club and Cycling Club Hackney sports delegation to visit Kampala in 2011. There they will invite a team of young Ugandan cycling enthusiasts back over to share in the 2012 London Olympic experience that will be happening in and around Hackney come 27 July-12 Aug (Olympic Games) and 29 Aug-9 Sept (Paralympic Games)

We're looking forward to cultivating relations and fund raising to make this possible for our partners in Uganda and our young cycling volunteers in Hackney.
The first phase of this activity is being supported by the Hackney Homes Staff Alpine Challenge Team, who will be helping during a reconnaissance and fact finding trip this November.

Interlinkx youth and community bike clubs get donated bikes from Hackney's police stations

Some of the bikes that have been accumulating at Hackney's Police stations are finally being sent Interlinkx's way, It's well worth the wait - thank you! This is with an agreement that any youngsters working on them are given qualified instruction and make positive community contributions. These bikes are to be released after being made road worthy and registered with Immobilise. 
Young people are to be advised about how to avoid loosing their new bikes and will offered an incentive to keep hold of it for as long as they want to. No more of that "easy come easy go" attitude please.
Also as a priority, two or three cycles will be prepared and sent to appreciative recipients via Re-Cycle bikes for Africa or shipped by air freight direct to one of our contacts in Kampala, Uganda.
