HISTORY

The world famous Good Friday Meeting was conceived in January 1903 when a small group of enthusiasts persuaded their sceptical colleagues of the Southern Counties Cycling Union that the Union should promote a meeting at Herne Hill on the coming Good Friday. The track was booked for the following year and an almost unbroken series of meetings has continued to the present day. This iconic event is part of the rich fabric of British cycling history, that regularly attracts world class riders. Many legends of cycling have plied their trade at The Good Friday Meeting for decades.
