How We're Organised

Forge London is run as a collective – volunteers giving up their free time for the love of cycling and to improve the club.

Every year, members of the club elect our Committee, including the Club Chair, Club Treasurer and Club Captain (responsible for riders and groups).

Our committee members and Ride Captains are all volunteers including our Club Social Secretary, the Road Captains, Head of Diversity, Club Trip Organiser, Website Editor and New Joiner Liaison.

Whether leading a club ride, looking after the finances of the club or coordinating social plans, if you are interested in helping out, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

We have a full Forge London constitution that covers all aspects of decision-making, expected behaviour and our club standards and ethics.


Forge London relies on members to help out with all activities, duties and social aspects of the club. Volunteering is great fun, a good way to meet lots of members and to get to know them socially off the bike. If you love cycling and want to get involved in all aspects of a great cycling club, then get in touch.
