Club History


The Glendene Cycling Club was founded in the East End of London in 1921 by ten racing enthusiasts looking to set up a new competitive racing club. They met at the East Ham home of Mr E.J. Morgan, who was elected the club's first president. The somewhat unusual name "Glendene" was chosen in memory of a successful touring holiday they had enjoyed in Scotland the previous year (1920).
