Welcome to Horsham Cycling

Our club is welcoming to all types of rider, from leisure cyclist to competitive racer. Seven groups meet at the Carfax every Sunday morning, each with different speeds and distances in mind.

Horsham is surrounded by fantastic Sussex countryside and quiet roads. The club is a great way of discovering new routes, making friends and perhaps opening yourself to new cycling challenges.

You can join us for a ride or two without being a member, why not give us a try? See the rides page for more details.

Isle of Wight Weekend - 20/21 September 2014.

The Club’s annual Isle of Wight weekend is one of the highlights of the HC calendar. This event is always popular and is a great mix of riding and socialising. In recent years, this has been organised by Peter Delve, however, it is now my duty to arrange. So firstly, I would like to thank Peter for all his hard work for making previous trips such a great success.

This year’s trip, our ninth, will follow the same successful formula. For those of you who are new to the Club full details can be read in this document.  So if you would like to come along, please email me on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Dunwich Dynamo - Saturday 12 / Sunday 13 July 2014.

Still a few places left for this amazing ride. 

Just two months to go until this relatively easy 115 mile night ride from London (Hackney) to Dunwich on the Suffolk Coast which is organised by the Southwark Cyclists. The ride is free to enter.

As in previous years, we are providing transport by way of a mini bus and bike van to simplify the logistics. We leave Horsham around 17.00 on the Saturday evening with the ride commencing at 20.00. Depart from Dunwich around 08.00 Sunday after having a full English breakfast in the cafe by the sea, returning to Horsham late morning. The transport cost is £40.

If you wish to take part please pay via the event payment button on the home page of the Club website and once you have done so, please email me to confirm. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Guests also welcome.

Mike Carr Social Groups' Downhill Trophy Sunday 6th July 2014.

This will take place on Grinder's Lane/Honeybridge Lane, Dial Post starting at the top of the hill after the Old Barn Nursery. Mike Cross has agreed to organise again this year, ably assisted by multiple past winner Philip van der Veen.

The event will be part of the normal Social 1 and 2 rides and open to all recognised Social Group riders. The Ride Leaders, Alan Eakins and Philip, will take their rides there with the event commencing around 10.15. Mike will explain the rules of combat prior to the start. As usual each rider will be allowed one pedal stroke then freewheeling only and the person covering the greatest distance is the winner. There will be plaques for the first three riders covering the greatest distance and a separate Ladies plaque for the furthest Lady member. If anyone has any queries please let me know but I hope as many of our ever increasing Social members as possible will take part to make it a memorable year.

Peter Delve, Chairman.
