Rained off? Southwold en Bici Bike Club turn to turbo trainers

What can an after school Bike Club do if the weather is really bad? A primary school in Hackney has the perfect solution to keep the group meeting and their Bike Club's wheels turning.

As I cycled up the canal towpath network from Canary Wharf to Hackney, to see Southwold en Bici Bike Club in action, the heavens opened giving me a good and proper soaking.

The path got very slippery, I applied my brakes with caution and greatly reduced my speed. I expected that the session would be cancelled due to the exceptionally bad weather.

However, the after-school Bike Club at Southwold School did not let the torrential downpours dampen their spirits, they all wanted to ride.
