A coach and a young paracycling protege from a cycling club in Woolwich have both been honoured at a national level at the annual British Cycling wards.

Woolwich Cycling Club's Matthew Robertson from Eltham was presented with awards for both his success as a national champion, and for setting national and world records.

The 20-year-old is part of Team GB's Paracycling Squad, and was presented with his awards at the yearly awards, this year marking the 60th anniversary of British cycling.

Fellow clubmate, Terry Bake, who was a founding member of British Cycling and has coached Matthew, has also been recognised, being awarded the 'Gold Medal of Honour'.

Matthew, who has just returned from the World Championships in Canada, paid tribute to his coach, stating: "Terry has been a huge support for me over the years and I would like to thank him for all his help."

Together, the pair posed for a photo with British Cycling''s chief executive Julie Harrington at the awards ceremony.

Terry himself said: "With British Cycling celebrating its 60th anniversary its satisfying, as a founder member back in 1959, to have my years of riding, organising, and coaching the likes of Matthew, recognised at National level.

"It's been fun and this award is the icing on the cake."

Matthew has right side hemiplegia, a neurological condition which affects the part of the brain that controls movement. In 2014, he was inspired to take up competitive cycling and joined Woolwich Cycling Club.

He studied in Kidbrooke, and was the 2015 Youth Road Circuit Paracycling National Champion.

Based in south east London, Woolwich Cycling Club was set up at Woolwich Arsenal in 1884 for workers at the Arsenal.

The club caters to a mix of ages and levels, having hundreds of riders from across Woolwich, Greenwich, Eltham and Bexley.
