Anfield Bicycle Club
The Anfield Bicycle Club was formed in 1879 in the Anfield district of Liverpool. The "Anfield" has an important place in cycling history. Our riders helped shape competitive long distance cycling and time-trialling. Outstanding Anfielders included prolific record breaker George Pilkington Mills, who won the first Bordeaux - Paris race in 1891. His exploits helped inspire the Tour de France.
Club activities include Saturday clubruns in West Cheshire, weekends in North Wales, and the classic Anfield 100, held annually each Spring Bank Holiday Monday on Shropshire roads.
In 1906 the Club introduced a newsletter The Anfield Circular. The first issue explained its purpose was to provide information about club activities and to report on items of general interest. It has been published without break ever since and continues to celebrate club-life and heritage.
