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.

Spring Reliability Trial Sunday 29 March - Report.

Despite the wet and windy weather, 32 hardy riders turned out to ride our event.

This was made up of 26 HC members and six from Crawley Wheelers. Twenty one riders opted for the 56 mile 'The Isfield Challenge' to the Lavender Line Station, Isfield, East Sussex, while 11 chose the 33 mile route of 'The Stopham Shuttle', to the Pulborough Garden Centre at Stopham.

The rain did not appear to be as bad as forecast for most of the cyclists, but the ride was hard for many, especially for those returning from Isfield.

Also some feedback from Isfield. The cafe at the Lavender Line station was great value!

Riders started arriving back at the Forest School Youth Wing at 12.30pm. All enjoyed the Bruce family home baking over a cuppa.

Thanks to Colin Ferry for timing the event and to Ali and family for the spread of delicious cakes.

The next Reliability Trial will be in the autumn, date to be confirmed.
