Hackney GT strongly believe in putting back into cycling and sport. Any opportunity to get someone on a bicycle or youngster participating is a good thing. In our previous incarnation we were music promoters and we still like to hold the occasional party. Listening and dancing to live music and djs puts almost as big a smile on our faces as flying down hill at speed on two wheels.
Cyclo-cross training sessions.
Every Wednesday evening from 9th August right through to January 2017 . Happening on Hackney East Marsh opposite the Olympic velodrome.
11 years upwards.
The Tour of Cornfields 2016
2015 saw us co-promote The Tour of Cornfields. A 100k off-road sportive held in the beautiful countryside of Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire as pre-season cyclo-cross warm up. It starts and finishes in the the very impressive grounds of the National Trust, Wimpole Hall and the event is normally a sell out. It returns in 2016 on Sunday 4th Sept.

To add to the party atmosphere, Cal Jader from Movimientos and Marco Faimali of Bikesy.co.uk will be spinning the best tropical vibes and old school hip hop.

Hackney GT was founded in 2011 and despite being keen to manufacture in the UK, there wasn't an immediate source available. After several years dealing with various Far East companies and becoming more and more disillusioned with the service, Hackney GT went back to sourcing a UK maker. Since the end of 2014 we've been working with a great factory in Lancashire and spent most of 2015 developing and refining products. Finally we now have a full range that is of and of highest quality. Something to to move forward with and we are very proud of plus it's all made in England!
