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.

Ride Leader Training

Some of you will be aware that we have been looking into providing some training/guidance for our ride leaders. We are conscious that members volunteer for this role and we believe HC could do more for you in helping you in this role.

Philip van der Veen and myself have met with a qualified CTC Trainer and he will be leading a small friendly workshop on Saturday morning 5 March at the The Holbrook for up to 15 of our ride leaders. I would emphasise that this is not about taking on more responsibilities but very much an interactive session to help you run the rides with the outcome of providing you with practical hints and tips.

Philip will be asking our ride co-ordinators for names of ride leaders who would like to attend so please look out for this request and do try to come along. We will see how it goes with a view to running another session later in the year.
