    We are a social cycling group and we are based in Street.
    We meet most Sunday mornings, outside Street Library around 8.30.
    We have a Facebook page Street Peddlers Cycling Group.
    The group was formed December 2016

    Funny you say that as I just found this.As I was looking up "peddlers" and ironically I pass through Poplar on my return commute.My inward commute uses a different route.

    Maybe they are a group of cycling costermongers?

    A "Pedaler".......

    From the word "pedal"....

    No, it's not being pedantic. They are words with two completely different meanings and to avoid confusion (particularly if setting up a cycling group!) you should really get it right. If you're going to throw "street" in front of pedaler/peddler, that makes it even more confusing, even if you ARE from Street. I would like to think it's all a clever play on words, but........

    Not to be pedantic but.....shouldn't that be 'pedaller', with a double 'L'?

    Of course, membership may be restricted to travelling vendors from the vicinity of Street who enjoy riding bikes, then we'd be the ones with red faces wouldn't we?

    As this is a predominantly British site, I prefer to go with the standard English spelling.

    What hope is there for cycling if we can't spell the activity? Jeez (yes, I know he didn't spell it like that...)
