Join Us: Become a member

To join us and become a member of BCN London Chapter is simple. Just attend a Saturday Club Ride hosted at Regent’s Park. Make yourself known to the Ride Captains and they will give an induction and assign you to G3 or G4 for your initial ride, to familiarise you with Group riding and BCN calls and commands. After your first ride you will discuss with the Ride Captain and will either go up or remain in G3/G4. You are eligible for membership after completing 3 Saturday Club Rides. You are able to attend the Sunday Club Rides If you have any additional queries regarding attending a BCN ride or membership please contact us via blackcyclistsnetwork@gmail.com

We meet in the far corner of Regent’s Park Zoo Car Park (See map for the circled red area) entrance via Outer Circle at 8am. We separate into groups and then set off. We ride around till about 10am then we regroup at the café for socials.

BCN London: Children & Young people

In the future BCN London is looking forward to welcoming children and young people (those under 18 years old) to many BCN London events. However, as we are sure our members and people interested in BCN will understand, working with children and young people needs to involve careful planning to ensure that their safeguarding and safety are paramount. This will mean additional training and planning for BCN London ride captains and committee members and unfortunately this is not something that BCN London is able to undertake at the moment. But we will progress this as soon as we can as we believe that working with children as part of BCN London is of vital importance. So, unfortunately, this does mean that currently BCN London is not able to welcome those who are under 18 to our rides. As soon as we can work with children and young people, we will, and we will let everyone know!
