London Cycling Club

About Us

About Us London Cycling Club offers a schedule of Cycling Tours from April through October and occasional other weekend tours to an "exotic" Ontario locale. We also offer various social events throughout the year including a spring kick-off Brunch, summer barbecue, an Annual General Meeting and Banquet and a winter hike.

For most Sunday cycling events there are three tour groups: short, medium and long. The length and speed of each ride varies with the tour group. Short: 20 to 25 kph; Medium; 25 to 30 kph, Long: 30+ kph. No rider is left behind on their own, however please talk to a club executive member if you are unsure of your abilities during your first season. Tours typically last from 2 to 5 hours. Saturday tours typically consist of one or two groups which cater their group speed to those in attendance. See the Club Tours page for ride details Club Tours

Participants are asked to meet 15 minutes before Sunday tours leave the Saturn Playground parking lot in Greenway Park. We will attempt to have a short group leader available for rides in the early part of the season, typically April and May.

Due to strict Ontario Cycling Association insurance requirements, all participants MUST be paid up members in good standing of the London Cycling Club and MUST sign a waiver when they join. If you are a member of another OCA affiliated Club then you can ride with us but you must be able to prove that you have current, valid OCA Insurance at the start of the ride.

START TIMES
TOURS LEAVE AT 9:00 AM DURING APRIL AND OCTOBER.
TOURS LEAVE AT 8:30 AM MAY THROUGH SEPTEMBER.

For the benefit of all riders, please ensure that your bicycle is in good working order. Along with your multi-gear bicycle please bring water bottles, a snack, spare inner tube, air pump and change for refreshments at our scheduled rest stops. Cycling skills do vary within the club, but at a minimum it is recommended that a rider should be able to maintain an average pace of 20 kph for up to a 50 km ride.

In the interest of safety, all cycling tours are contingent on weather conditions. Tours will not be held if current weather conditions consist of snow, rain or fog, or there is a 70% + chance of rain. To determine the possibility of precipitation, London Cycling Club encourages you to click on the link here The Weather Network or the link located on the home page.

Helmets are mandatory on all club rides
