Balham Cycling Club was formed in 1897 by the landlord of The Balham Hotel (now the Regent), George Huntley

The club has a rich heritage which includes a cycling manufacturing icon in Claud Butler, a world record holder in Albert Wills, Team GB star Basil Bragg and a legendary race in The Balham Rough Stuff.

A photograph found in a battered old suitcase inspires the latest reincarnation of the club…no really.
