Welcome to The Darji Mitra Mandal website. We are a self run community group based in North London supporting the Darji community in the UK. The literal translation of the Gujarati word Darji is Tailor and many of our community elders are still Tailors by trade, although many are not. Founded in 1958 our aim is to keep our community connected and maintain our Hindu traditions in today's fast paced life.
A few of us DMM community members decided that we wanted to improve our general fitness so we formed the Sunday Cycling Club last year. We started cycling on Sunday mornings in & around Hyde Park and within a few months we progressed to cycling on the roads and managed to feel comfortable cycling longer distances around 25 to 30 miles.
As a result, we all feel healthier and fitter, now we’re ready to face our next challenge; 45 miles on the road.
