About Us

VC Londres is a cycle racing club based in and around South East London for youths and adults.

We are the home club at Herne Hill Velodrome, taking a lead role in the venue’s survival. We run a number of sessions there, both for our members and the general public. We have around 350 members, which makes us one of the larger, but certainly not the largest club in London. We aim that most members should know each other. Most members start out at Herne Hill Velodrome.

We are particularly focused on track and road racing, as well as cyclo-cross in the winter.

Around half of our members are under 18, and we pride ourselves in having a strong development focus. Many of our current and previous members have excelled at national and international level and we also have one of the largest number of qualified coaches of any cycling club in the country.

Our members compete at all levels of cycle-sport, and while some are very serious about their sport, many others enjoy it as a casual hobby. The majority of our members are current, previous, or family members of bike racers.
