About us

British Cycling and HSBC, of all people, should know that all cycling clubs must have a bank account. Or is this just true everywhere except in the East End?

Having had all our rides on Eventbrite virtually blown up by some anarchist a few days before our 9/11 ride this year because we didn't have a bank account, we are now having to rebuild our group from scratch, using an Eventbrite competitor Billetto as our ticketing provider. We don't want this to happen again! However we now have a competitive advantage with Billetto, as bookings no longer need to be 'blind' and you can see who else is coming on rides.

We want to create a truly diverse group, covering not just the East End, but operating across the whole of London. We want everyone to be able to participate, contribute ideas and draw on the skills, knowledge and backgrounds of the club's members.

We've a proper Constitution and an Equal Opportunities Policy we believe in.

The East End Cycling Club membership subscription is £10 per year. This will give you priority access to the booking of places on rides.
