"Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" - Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr: https://greenwich-cyclists.eventbrite.co.uk. We're simply a bunch of local bikers who got together in May 2000 to push bikes up the agenda, press the Council for better bike facilities, do rides for all sorts of people, and have some fun at the same time. We've a proper Constitution and an Equal Opportunities Policy we believe in.

Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day Ride 2020/1


It was ironic that the only way we could legally run the Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day rides this year was to adopt the anarchic "turn up when you feel like it" practices of the Dunwich Dynamo - we had established routes which many people knew and which could be shared beforehand, so all we then needed to do to make the rides conform to lockdown rules was to stagger the start times over an extended period. There was also an added incentive that there was almost nothing else that we were allowed to do!

Ride to the View Tube - Sat Nov 21st

During lockdown, we are doing an experiment in democracy - each bubble of two makes its own mind up about what ride it wants to do. We can't all meet up at the View Tube to do a ride, but groups of two can still cycle there for a takeaway, as long as the groups are kept separate. The View Tube is a good destination for us, because, although it doesn't have a resident cycling club, it is still place where you often see other cyclists.

On Sat Nov 21st, at the last count, there were no less than six pairs of cyclists riding around North London. Rides were run like relay races with groups of two doing sections of a route and then handing over to a different group of two, freeing the original group up to return home via a suitable route.
