Risley takes Round 6 as NHP secures League title

North Harringay Primary School

North Harringay, winners of the 2015-16 League trophy.

On Friday 1st July, 30 children from Coleridge, North Harringay and Risley primary schools made their way to Chestnuts Park to compete in the Haringey Schools Cycling League Finals.

The light rain towards the end of the day did not disturb the competitive spirit. It was a tight competition but Risley pedalled that much faster and gave it their all. Defeating the competition in all but one race, Risley came away at the top of the points table for Round 6.

While the results, and total scores for the League competition, were being calculated, the children spent time racing for fun. It was great to have the competitors socialising and building friendships across the different schools.

Labijon from North Harringay Primary raced for the first time and said, “I’m so glad I came and took part but I’m sad that I won’t be racing again because I’ll be going to my new secondary school.”

Although Risley stole the win on the day’s races, North Harringay Primary had accumulated the most points over the year. Councilor Peray Ahmet presented the awards.

“It was hard cycling today because the grass was a bit wet. I couldn’t believe we won [the League], I was so happy!” said Travis from North Harringay Primary School.


After totalling the points from each race, the top three finishers for each category were:

Girls 24″
1st Evelisse, Risley 11 points
