Rides and Events

Our monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday each month:

8pm – 9:30pm at the Hornbeam Centre, 458 Hoe St, Walthamstow, E17 9AH

Join us for our regular monthly meeting where we discuss our local cycle campaigning such as residential cycle parking, the council’s plans to make our roads safer for cyclists, and London-wide initiatives.

We normally go for a drink afterwards around 9.30pm in the Drum or William IV pubs so come and join us there if you can’t make the meeting.

Everyone is welcome, but only LCC members can vote. Click here for the meeting minutes.

Monthly ride

We meet every fourth Sunday of the month.  The rides assemble from 10:00 for a 10:15 start outside Walthamstow Library.  This gives you time to have a coffee and browse the Farmer’s Market.  Some rides might start a little earlier so check the start time to make sure.

We have a few routes lined up and usually decide distance and destination on the day according to what people prefer. We ride leisurely suited to the wishes of participants. We usually stay within 30 miles and sometimes considerably shorter. We tend to be back by 3pm and always have a snack stop somewhere. We also have some planned rides for future months with details below.

Mountain Bike Rides

If you are looking for a muddy old mountain bike ride, Nicholas Fripp has regular mountain bikes through Epping Forest on the 1st and third Sunday of each month starting at 12 noon from the Hollow Ponds on Whipps Cross Road.  This is for hybrids and mountain bikes only.  For further information please contact Nicholas on 07961 544044.

Walthamstow Family Bike Club

We meet every 2nd Sunday of the month at 1pm at Orford Road/Church Lane junction E17 for a relaxed and enjoyable afternoon exploring the nooks and crannies around Walthamstow. We will visit a cafe later in the ride, may stop along the way for a picnic snack, and so apart from a bicycle and any children you can round up, bring some water and something to eat.

The maximum distance we do is 15 miles for the round trip, but as its tailored to the abilities of those who turn up, it is often be considerably shorter. We aim to get back no later than 6pm in the summer, and 5pm in the winter (when you’ll need to bring bring lights).

Summer Evening Rides

Take advantage of summer evenings and get on your bike!  Or join us after your commute home. We meet up on the 3rd Wednesday of each month  for a 6.30 p.m. start outside Walthamstow Library, with about an hour’s ride, followed by a quick drink in a pub near home.

The summer rides run from April to September.
