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 or read the FAQ.

Mike Carr Social Groups' Downhill Competition Sun 14 July 19

The annual running of this event will take place on Sunday 14th July. This is a great opportunity for a Social rider to compete for a trophy that will be awarded at the Club Dinner in December. That is of course assuming that it can be wrestled away from the hands of the current holder, Ray Watson.

The start line is on Honeybridge Lane which is to the left of the Old Barn Garden Centre. Riders will be set off at one-minute intervals and with just one half turn of the pedal, gravity will do the rest before they come to a stop on a slight incline just under a mile from the start. This is always a fun event with a good deal of support (and banter) for each rider as they try to squeeze the last inch out of their freewheel downhill.
