Our main 'man' 11 year old Geoffrey Butler is getting on with the programme, he's started work on one of the supply of 2nd hand kiddies bikes we have in store. These are for local families once they've been checked over by our own capable young mechanics. This one's a Raleigh Buzzer and is destined to be handed to a young relative of Geoffry's from Fawcett Estate.

Young regular Geoffrey Butler tests his bike in the water during tonights session.
Pleased with the performance, it's time to chill. Our lad is set to join De-shaun Hughs this Saturday morning on the way to check out Cycling Club Hackney's youth training session, he's sure looking forward to that.
The gloves pictured bellow are specially designed for protecting and keeping hands clean whilst doing mechanical work. They are modeled by long time member De-shaun Hughs who purchased them for a small fee from (i believe) the best pound shop in Hackney on Chatsworth Road. FYI it's the one across the road from the Too Sweet Caribbean food place. Also featured in D's hands are a pair of Park Tool cable clippers - essential kit for any decent bike fixer.
