The group QECR, is a friendly, sociable charity bike ride suitable for any keen cyclists capable of riding the distance, enthusiastic about fundraising and interested in the history of Queen Eleanor and the route of the original funeral procession.

The QECR was founded in 2008 and raises money for The Connection at St-Martin-in-the-Fields, a charity dedicated to providing specialist services to support homeless people in Central London.

It is possible to cycle the QECR route independently of the group event. A comprehensive information pack which gives details of the route, accommodation, bike shops, historical background, rail connections and maps is available at a cost of £10 by emailing queeneleanorcycle@gmail.com
