The club's history

The origin of the club can be traced back to the start of the second world war.

In 1939, the engineering firm of Mellor Bromley was one of the leading industrial companies in the city of Leicester.  A cycling club was formed as a part of the company’s social activity programme. It was named “The Mellor Bromley Cycling Club”. . .
