Dedicated to vintage bikes
Cicli Artigianali Cycle Club of London

Club Cicli Artigianali is an informal group of cyclists based in the London area who restore, maintain and most importantly, ride vintage, artisan-built road racing bicycles.

 In the main their machines hail from the 'golden era' of cycle racing - the 1930s to mid 1980s, the cut off date coinciding with the arrival of index gears, clipless pedals and all carbon fibre frames.

The Wheelman

"...dedicated to keeping alive the heritage of American cycling, promoting the restoration and riding of early cycles manufactured prior to 1918, and encouraging cycling as part of modern living."
