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.

Dog & Bell Crew

Governance for our rides is provided by Dog & Bell Crew rides planning meetings. These were instigated by the late Barry Mason, coordinator of Southwark Cyclists, founder of Greenwich Cyclists and Organiser of the Dunwich Dynamo.

East End Ride to the Peckham Spring

Both the East End and Southwark have a long history of welcoming outsiders. But what really set the cat amongst the pigeons was this ride from Tower Hamlets to Southwark, that was organised by people who were outsiders to both places. We failed to to get everyone to meet up at the View Tube and I was forbidden from taking a photo of group Cutty Sark. However, we were able to have a meeting at a neutral venue, Blackbird Bakery, which led to a deal that we would meet up the View Tube after the next Tour de L'East End ride, which takes place on Saturday September 18th.
