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.

"In Southwark" Healthy Ride to North London

Normally our Saturday morning "in Southwark" as opposed to "Southwark" Healthy Rides start at the Southwark Needle. But on this occasion the rain was so heavy that we finished there! Our meeting points were the ones we use for the Christmas Day Ride: bottom of Ingram Avenue, Hampstead Heath Extension and Beigel Bake, Brick Lane.

The London Cycling Campaign encourages volunteer cyclists to operate in borough-specific silos, building walls around themselves. The Dog & Bell Crew is all about pulling down those walls by encouraging people from different London boroughs, and perhaps not even from London at all, to talk to each other and cooperate to organise events. This was also what this ride was about.
