Barts & The London Cycling Club (BLCC) is a new sports club that aims to promote cycling within the university.
We welcome cyclists of all abilities; whether you are a complete beginner, a social cyclist or an experienced and competitive cyclist. We organise social rides on the weekends, and run coached sessions in road cycling.
Join our Strava group to let us know about your cycling, and to keep up with what the club and the BLCC members have been doing: www.strava.com/clubs/262599.
QMotion Spinning Sessions & Griff Inn Fitness Room Turbo Trainers
Our spin sessions will take place bi-monthly on alternate weeks to track sessions. We will have full use of the Mile End QMotion Spin Studio for 1 hour per week. These sessions are accessible to all with either the Spin & Social Subscription or the Full Subscription.
Social Weekend Rides
We organise social road rides on the weekends. The distance (anywhere between 30-100km) and speed of these rides will vary depend on demand and the ability of the group on the day. We either ride out from Whitechapel or hop on the tube to start the ride outside of the city. Tea and cake stops are encouraged. Access to these rides is included with both our Full Subscription as well as our Spin & Social Subscription.
Road Cycling Triaining Sessions
Our road cycling training sessions happen bi-monthly on Monday evenings (18:00-19:00) at the LeeValley VeloPark road circuit. Training is run by our two British Cycling qualified coaches, Dawn Hunter and Andy White. These sessions are perfect for those who want to improve their cycling abilities and/or those who are interested in competing. Included in our Full Subscription only, these sessions are an invaluable way to participate in the club and get access to world leading facilities, used in the 2012 London Olympics.
Members will require a bike and helmet for any club road rides. Equipment rental will be avaliable for all Velopark cycling activities. Unfortunetly, no equipment hire is avaliable for weekend rides.
As we are a new club, our participation in any competitions, such as BUCS and LUSL, will depend on the interest of our members. If you are interested in competing for us, please get in touch.
