London Dynamo’s roots stretch back to the early 1990s when friends Phil Cavell and Julian Wall, then of Bikepark and now of Cyclefit, gathered various acquaintances together to create an informal club centred on bike racing. The name London Dynamo was settled on, redolent of the tough, gritty road riders of Eastern Europe and teams such as Moscow Dynamo and Dynamo Kiev. Time Out was the club's first jersey sponsor.
In 2003 members Paul Callinan, Russell Short and Guy Andrews introduced the clubs iconic black, blue and orange kit and set about turning it into one of the largest and most successful clubs in the country.
The club has been built on the foundation of its membership, and we have been able to support more young riders, stage better events, support local leagues, form better relationships with local communities and enjoy a fantastic and supportive network of like-minded folk.
Cycle sport and friendliness remain firmly at the centre of the club’s identity. The club’s original Saturday Park Ride and Sunday Surrey Hills run continue to this day. Building on what we learn, giving of our time or expertise and simply enjoying what we do, this is London Dynamo.
