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.

Annual Special Social Time Trial - Saturday 9 May 11.00.

Our annual 'social' time trial on the G10/46 Okewoodhill 10 mile course, when we encourage everybody to have a go, particularly those who haven't raced before. Afterwards we congregate in The Punchbowl Inn where the Club provide a 'free' buffet lunch for entrants and helpers and the presentation of some fantastic category prizes.

Last year we had a variety of bikes on show from vintage racers, single-speeds, shoppers, a tandem (the stoker looked a bit slim) and Ali's Cruiser. It's also an opportunity to don some retro cycle clothing or fancy dress. Start looking through the garage or shed now to see what can be dusted off.

We will advise entry details in e.news nearer to the date.
