for stronger lgbt+ communities
Founded in September 2021 by Julian Gregory, LDN RIDERS quickly became London’s largest LGBTQ+ cycling club and has been nominated for multiple awards.
Community is at the heart of everything we do. Our mission is to create a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment where we can come together to ride, train, and socialise.
We spend as much time socialising off our bikes as we do on them, with regular social events and at least one coffee or pub stop on every ride!
“I know firsthand the importance of finding safe and inclusive spaces where we can be ourselves and connect with others. The sense of community and belonging that comes from being a part of something special.
“Having taken up cycling during lock down, I discovered the incredible benefits it brings to both physical and mental health. But as someone who didn’t have many friends who cycled regularly, I tried and struggled to find an LGBTQ+ cycling group in London that catered to what I was looking for. It was then that I decided to launch LDN RIDERS.
“The club has since become the way that hundreds of people from our community keep fit, explore nature, socialise and make new friends.” – Julian Gregory, Founder
