We like to do things a little differently. We believe that the traditional cycling club model isn't for everyone and when we set up EC1, we didn't want to replicate what was already in existence.

We wanted to bring our corporate backgrounds and passion for cycling together in order to offer something that's unique and aims to build a social community of like-minded cyclists

It's a fact of life that we are all consumers as well as passionate cyclists. Let's be honest too, buying the kit is often the exciting part. So we want to bring brands, local bike shops, tour operators and event organisers to the centre of what we offer to our members.

We are proud to be affiliated with carefully chosen partners because we believe they are best in class. This also means we can offer the chance for our members to interact with the people at the heart of the cycling industry. Pro riders, team staff, bike and component manufacturers, kit designers and industry personalities all play key roles in the preparation and execution of our monthly expeditions.

We feel that this approach, alongside the exclusive offers and opportunities we bring our members, makes the EC1 Collective something really special. We hope you feel the same so we can see you out on the road with us in the future!
