The Best Social Cycling Clubs in London: 2024 Guide

Find the Best London Cycling Clubs for Social Rides

Looking to immerse yourself in London’s cycling community while enjoying social rides with fellow cyclists? Look no further! London hosts a variety of cycling clubs catering to riders of all levels and interests. Whether you crave leisurely countryside adventures or laps of the many parks London has to offer, there’s a club waiting to welcome you. Let’s delve into some of the finest cycling clubs in London for social riding.

1. Chain Gang Cyclists

London’s friendliest cycling club the Chain Gang Cyclists (CGC) was founded during Quarantine 2020 by Yannick and his friends developed a passion for cycling as a way to keep fit and get much needed headspace during phase 1 lockdown. As restrictions eased several friends who had developed the same love for the tarmac grew together to form a bike chain, which has fast turned into a weekly occurrence of rides across London and surrounding areas.

Meeting Details: CGC meet weekly on Tuesdays for hot laps at Regents Park, Fridays mornings for chatty laps at Regents Park followed by coffee at Rapha. They also have monthly brunch rides for new cyclists to join at Richmond Park.
