Why join the Baroudeurs?
The London Baroudeurs (LBCC) aims to actively support people who love the thrill of riding a bicycle. We do this by organising rides and events that celebrate individual and team achievements.
LBCC is an encouraging community of people, and as such, most, if not all members know each other by name. We’re not just ambassadors for the club, but aim to represent, and model, everything positive about cycling.
How do I know this is the club for me?
Before deciding whether to join the London Baroudeurs, you’ll want to ride with us to see if we’re what you’re looking for. There are many cycling clubs to choose from in London, each with its own distinctive character, so it’s vital you experience some rides before you decide. Our Sunday rides can be too pacy for beginners and can take up half the day, so we recommend prospective members, regardless of experience, to start with joining us for one of our lap sessions. These are at Richmond Park on a Saturday morning, or in Regent’s Park on a Friday morning.
We hold a social ride on the last Saturday of the month for prospective and current members. This is at a conversational pace between 15-18mph for an hour. It’s a good idea to know what to expect by looking at YMBRN. Please get in touch to organise meeting up.
A taste of the ‘Breakfast Club’ sessions in Regent’s Park
This is our most popular way of training. First thing on a Friday morning, Regent’s Laps can average 20mph+ for an hour (more in the summer). We recommend you already ride a road bike and are familiar with group riding etiquette. Please get in touch to organise meeting up.
How do I become a Member?
If everyone’s happy, an invitation to take membership, and the chance to wear Baroudeur kit, will follow after regular riding over 3 months with the team. We believe in the ‘right fit’ every time; in the value of dedicated club members who fly the Big-B, not just because it looks good, but because it is a reflection of what you can achieve.
