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.

Off Road Email Group.

offroadWe have set up a new email group for those who are interested in the off road rides. If you want to receive these emails (in addition to e.news) then please email me.

We will continue use both e.news and the website to provide off road details, such as when rides are starting in places other than the Carfax. However, this will allow us to send additional reminders when we are heading to a different start point or planning an additional ride. This means we can ensure anyone interested in off road rides get these messages.

Well done to everybody who participated and thank you to Sabina for her great instruction and enthusiasm.

Christmas Dinner and Awards Evening - Report.

Another excellent evening at the Rookwood Golf Club enjoyed by almost 50 members.

Congratulations to all the Trophy and Plaque winners.

The Club Person of the Year and Chain Line Award Trophies deservedly won by Ali Bruce and Robbie Calder respectively. Ali won the award for his efforts in a number of events during 2014, including organising the Tour of Isle of Wight weekend – and providing excellent cake baking at the post Reliability Trial rides. Robbie's article about his epic ride "London-Edinburgh-London 1400km (850 miles) with a time limit of 116 hours!" in the October issue of Chain Line was great reading.

A big thanks to Coralie Clarke for her excellent organisation and for all the members who donated a generous £168 for the Dave Rayner Fund.

Peter Delve, Chairman.
