About the Lanterne Rouge
At Warwick Lanterne Rouge we provide a friendly, welcoming and inclusive environment for cyclists from all backgrounds.
Committed to growing participation in cycling, we promote grassroots racing and provide a calendar of social club activities that appeal to cyclists of all levels. Predominantly a road cycling club although we have a growing contingent of members who do multi cycling disciplines including CX, Gravel and Time Trials.
Through an active volunteering programme, our members are encouraged to give back in a way that is a positive experience for everyone.
Join us for one of our regular Sunday Club rides to find out how Warwick’s very own cycling club can enhance and enliven your cycling experience!
