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.

Quiz Night Success

 We had a great turn out of over 40 members for our recent quiz at the Horsham Club in the Carfax. Quizmaster Alan Dolan was superb & more than one person wondered whether he's missed his vocation as a stand-up comedian!
 
Much banter, heckling, trips to the bar and several sandwiches later, Alan announced the winning team (of 5 members-how did that happen?) whose members each won a bottle of wine, and the not-quite-so-winning team (who only had 3 members...)who won a puncture patch each!
All agreed it was a great venue & we have already had several requests for a repeat next year.
 
Thanks to everyone who made it a fun evening & special thanks to the volunteer bar staff & our wonderful host, Alan.
