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.

This is an amazing 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 5pm on the Saturday evening with the ride commencing at 7.45pm.

Depart from Dunwich around 8am Sunday after having a full English breakfast in the cafe by the sea, returning to Horsham late morning.

The transport cost this year is £40.

There are still places available (on a first come first served bases) and if you wish to part in this ride please pay via the event payment button on the home page of the club website.

Spring Reliability Trial Report - 20 March 16

What a difference two months makes. This morning the weather was much better than the day of our last RT in January resulting in a total of 52 riders taking part. This included 6 guests from the Crawley Wheelers.

Today we had a choice of two rides, the longer one going to the Ashdown Forest (using the same route from previous RTs about 5 years ago) and the shorter route to the Pulborough Garden Centre at Stopham Bridge.

Ride numbers were split evenly between the two rides, 26 and 26. Many of the riders made it back within their chosen time and some even earlier.

Sorry to hear that both rides encountered long queues at Washbrooks Farm and Pulborough Garden Centre. Also the Stopham ride encountered a partial road closure near West Chiltington golf club where BT where erecting new poles.

At the finish everyone chatted about their ride over refreshments at the Youth Wing. It was also good to see Jon Fry and Tim Peters turn up for coffee and cake after participating in an early season 25 mile two up time trial.

Thanks to Colin Ferry for timing the event and to Barry Harwood & Keith Shuttlewood for providing the home baking. Also to Linda Beattie for doing the washing up and tidying the hall.
