Welcome to Horsham Cycling

flypass.jpg

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.

Our 2014 Season

In addition to regular Sunday rides we have many other events for members to enjoy:

Christmas Dinner and Awards Evening - Thursday 11 December.

The Christmas Dinner and Awards evening will be held on Thursday 11th December at The Warnham Barn, Rookwood Golf Club, Robin Hood Lane, Horsham - 19:00 for 19:30 start.

The seating plan worked well last year so I will do the same again this year. Each table will seat either 8 or 10 people, depending on numbers. So if there is someone you would particularly like to sit with, please let me know when booking so I can do my best to keep everyone happy. I won't be able to do last minute changes as the table plans will be determined in advance for Rookwood, so you need to let me have this information up-front.

You can opt for 2 courses (£17) or 3 courses (£23); these prices also include coffee and mints. The Club is providing a subsidy of £5 a head which will cover the cost of some of the food as well as the tip. Drinks are not included and will need to be paid for on the night. Click here for the full menu, choose what you would like to eat and email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by 19th November. Payment in full is by Paypal (see Event Payment on the bottom right hand side on the front page of the website) or by cheque payable to Horsham Cycling (for those who don't have Paypal). Sorry - no refunds for non-attendance.

Coralie Clarke, Organiser.

 

Club Pub Night - Wednesday 29 October.

The Black Jug, 31 North Street, Horsham RH12 1RJ from 20.30.

Meet up with your Club mates and discuss all things cycling and anything else. It is also a good opportunity for the newer members to meet others from the Club.

Stewart Forbes, Club pub night organiser.

 

Club Hill Climb Competition Sunday 26 October 2014 - 10.00.

This will take place on a private road within the Denbies Wine Estate, Dorking RH5 6AA. We are very grateful to Denbies for letting us use their road (free of charge) and hopefully we can all congregate after the event in their restaurant for coffee/cake.

We must be off the hill by 11.00 so we will commence the event at 10.01 with the last rider starting at 10.30. The field will be limited to 30 riders so it would be sensible to pre-enter by 17.00 Saturday 25th to secure a place. Email - This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it -. Entry fee £3.

Events Report.

Another busy few months at HC in addition to our normal Sunday group rides and time trial events.

The annual post-ride lunch on 6th July at The Warnham Barn, Rookwood Golf Course was well attended and a BBQ enjoyed in good weather. Thanks to Sabina Hickmet for once again organising this event.

A week later another Dunwich Dynamo trip, once again HC logistics organised by Stewart Forbes, with Ali Bruce and Jim Evans as drivers of the bike van and mini bus. Our thanks go to all three. It was good to see members still continue to sign up for this night ride for the first time as well as the regulars. Congratulations to Dave Homewood and Malcolm Rowe for completing their charity cycle ride back to London, forsaking the luxury of a bus trip home.

The Isle of Wight trip in September, our ninth, was again well attended and this year we saw a record number, 18, cycling to Shanklin on the Friday, in addition to four joining later. Ali Bruce took over the organising of this event and transporting the luggage to and from the hotel, and relieved of this task meant I was able to get some extra cycle miles in on both the Friday and Sunday which was very enjoyable. Thank you Ali for all your efforts.

Finally, another Mouscron Belgium October weekend, this time organised by Steve Strickland. Again members joining up for the first time as well as the regulars, 16 in total enjoying cycling over the two days. Thank you Steve.

For all these events the number of members who have enjoyed these extra Club activities at least once increases and for others they have became a permanent feature of their Horsham Cycling year.

The arrangements for the Christmas Dinner and Awards evening on Thursday 11th December were announced in e.news last Sunday and are now also on our website. I look toward to seeing as many of our members as possible celebrate another successful year in Horsham Cycling. Coralie Clarke is organising this event and I would like to thank her for taking this task on once again.

Peter Delve, Chairman.
