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.
